41st Annual National Fallen Firefighters
Memorial Weekend will be held October 8-9, 2022
EMMITSBURG, MD – The 41st Annual National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend will
be held on October 8-9, 2022. Due to factors beyond our control, we decided not to change the
date of the National Memorial as it had been previously announced. The Memorial Weekend will
be held in-person on the grounds of the National Emergency Training Center (NETC) in
“Each year, we gather in Emmitsburg to remember the sacrifices of those who died in the line of
duty and to let their families, friends, and co-workers know they will never be forgotten,” said
Troy Markel, Chairman of the Board of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF).
The NFFF will continue to work with the United States Fire Administration (USFA) and Federal
Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) regarding any updates and possible impacts from the
pandemic. The Foundation continues to ensure the families of the fallen and the departments
who have lost a firefighter that they are our top priority.
