Laguna Beach, CA – The Laguna Beach Fire Department will be participating in ‘Light the Night for Fallen Firefighters’ from September 29 to October 6, 2019. Every October, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation sponsors the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend, the official national tribute to those firefighters who died in the line of duty during the previous year.
The Laguna Beach Fire Department in collaboration with City Hall and the Police and Marine Safety Departments will light all four fire stations, main beach lifeguard tower, lifeguard headquarters, and the entrance of city hall with red lights in honor of fallen firefighters.
As dusk turns to dark, landmarks across the country will again glow in respect to the fallen and their families. The names of 92 firefighters who died in 2018 as well as 27 who died in the previous years will be added to the National Fallen Firefighter Memorial in Emmitsburg, Maryland.
