Located in the shadow of Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs, the Memorial honors the sacrifice made by IAFF members who have given their lives in the line of duty.
At this year’s memorial service, the IAFF will add 458 fallen fire fighters from the United States and Canada to the Wall of Honor. Due to COVID-19 and the cancellation of an in-person 2020 event, all 2020 honoree families have been invited to attend the 2021 Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial where our fallen members will receive proper recognition.
We continue to monitor COVID-19 risks and are in constant communication with City of Colorado Springs and Colorado Springs Local 5 leadership to prepare for an in-person event this year.
