2019 Alaska Fallen Firefighter Memorial Ceremony and September 11th Memorial Event

The Alaska Fallen Firefighter Memorial Committee, the Alaska State Firefighters Association, and the Alaska Fire Chiefs Association in conjunction with Fire Agencies from across Alaska will be hosting a ceremony on Wednesday, September 11, 2019 at the Alaska Fallen Firefighter Memorial.
 
This ceremony is conducted in remembrance of those Alaska Firefighters and Emergency Responders who have died in the line of duty. This years’ service will include speakers from across Alaska commemorating the service fire and emergency responders provide everyday throughout the year. This is also the 18th anniversary of the September 11th  attack.
 
Firefighter/Paramedic Ben Schultz will be this year’s keynote speaker. Ben was injured in an aerial ladder truck training accident 2 years ago.
 
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.
