Memorial service for Toronto’s fallen firefighters
  
Councillor John Parker (Ward 26 Don Valley West), representatives from the City of Toronto Fire Services and the Toronto Professional Fire Fighters Association will honour the addition of eight fallen firefighters to the Memorial Honour Roll on June 3. A total of 230 firefighters have died in the line of duty while protecting lives, property and the environment in Toronto since 1848.

Date: Sunday, June 3
Time: 11 a.m.
Location: Harbourfront Fire Station #334, 339 Queens Quay W.

The fallen Toronto firefighters all proudly exemplified the Toronto Fire Services’ credo of “Courage, Compassion, and Service.” Among the firefighters who have lost their lives in the line of duty, many of the recent deaths are recognized by the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board of Ontario as the result of work-related cancers. During the past 11 years, firefighters, families and friends have gathered for an annual ceremony of remembrance to honour those who have paid the supreme sacrifice in the performance of their dangerous duties.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.7 million people. Toronto's government is dedicated to delivering customer service excellence, creating a transparent and accountable government, reducing the size and cost of government and building a transportation city.
