A ceremony on Wednesday at the Alaska Fallen Firefighter Memorial is taking place to honor and remember those Alaska Firefighters and Emergency Responders who have died in the line of duty. The Alaska Fallen Firefighter Memorial Committee, the Alaska State Firefighters Association, and the Alaska Fire Chiefs Association along with Fire Agencies from across Alaska will be holding similar ceremonies. This years’ service will include speakers from across Alaska commemorating the service fire and emergency responders provide every day throughout the year. This is also the 18th anniversary of the September 11th attack. At the end of the service, a special bell ceremony will “ring home” those firefighters in Alaska that have been killed in the line of duty.
