Memorial service for Toronto’s fallen firefighters
The City of Toronto's Fire Services and the Toronto Professional Fire Fighters Association will honour the addition of five fallen firefighters to the Memorial Honour Roll.

A total of 218 firefighters have died in the line of duty while protecting lives, property and the environment in Toronto since 1848. 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.

Date: Sunday, June 13
Time: 11 a.m.
Place: Harbourfront Fire Station #334, 339 Queens Quay W.

During the past nine 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.

Please join us as we honour Toronto’s fallen firefighters, who proudly exemplified the Toronto Fire Services’ credo of “courage, compassion, and service.”

The service will include words of solace and the laying of wreaths by senior representatives from the City of Toronto and from the Toronto Professional Fire Fighters Association.
