Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service
Each October, in conjunction with National Fire Prevention Month, fallen fire heroes are honored. Those fire fighters from across Texas, who died in the line of duty, were honored Monday in College Station.
College Station Fire Department hosted the event at Fire Station 2. The service was a tribute to eight Texas firefighters who lost their lives in the line of duty in 2005.
The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation is planning a Memorial weekend at the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, MD. Survivors of the fallen firefighters gather alongside thousands of others in memory of the lost heroes.
This year's Memorial weekend will take place October 6th through October 8th, with a National Memorial Service scheduled for 10:00 am on Sunday, October 8th.
