Recognizing Fire Service Personnel on International Firefighters’ Day

May 4, 2017

By Mike Worrell, FirstNet Senior Fire Services Advisor

International Firefighter's Day 2017

At FirstNet, we are committed to serving America’s public safety personnel, including the many contributions made by the fire service.

Today is International Firefighters’ Day (IFFD), which recognizes the men and women throughout the fire service who risk their lives each day to protect lives and property in their communities.  On behalf of the FirstNet team, I would like to extend our appreciation to firefighters worldwide for their level of commitment and dedication.

In conjunction with IFFD, the fire service community recognizes the sacrifices made by firefighters in the form of a “Sound Off” that is held on the first Sunday of every May at noon (local time). This is an opportunity to reflect on and remember those lost or injured in the line of duty through an international show of support.  To learn more about the global “Sound Off,” please visit the IFFD website. The IFFD organization will be sharing information about the “Sound Off” and IFFD over social media via their TwitterFacebook, and Flickr accounts.

At FirstNet, we are committed to serving America’s public safety personnel, including the many contributions made by the fire service.  The nationwide public safety broadband network will benefit the safety and security of our firefighters and the communities they serve for years to come, and I am honored to be involved in such an important undertaking for public safety.

Thanks,

Mike
