International Firefighters’ Day is May 4

Recognize and Honor the Sacrifices of Firefighters

Firefighters dedicate their lives to the protection of life and property. Sometimes that dedication is in the form of countless hours volunteered over many years, in others it is many selfless years working in the industry. In all cases, it risks the ultimate sacrifice of a firefighter’s life.

International Firefighters’ Day — each year on May 4 — is a time where the world’s community can recognize and honor the sacrifices that firefighters make to ensure that their communities and environment are as safe as possible. It is also a day in which current and past firefighters can be thanked for their contributions.

In commemoration of International Firefighters’ Day, America’s Charities and its member National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) ask you to celebrate firefighters by:

The NFFF’s mission is to honor and remember America’s fallen fire heroes, to provide resources to assist their families in rebuilding their lives, and to work within the fire service community to reduce firefighter deaths and injuries.

 

Honor the Men and Women Who Made the Ultimate Sacrifice

In recognition of International Firefighters’ Day National Firefighters, we encourage you to donate to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation here or through your workplace giving program to honor the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their communities and neighbors. 

One of the most cost-efficient ways you can support nonprofits is to donate to them via payroll deduction through your employer’s workplace giving program. As the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation’s workplace giving partner, America’s Charities can help your company implement a program centered on supporting their work – through workplace giving campaigns, employee fundraising, matching gifts, and other employee engagement and philanthropic initiatives.
