This weekend the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg will honor those Fire Fighters who made the ultimate sacrifice in 2016. Families of the fallen and fellow fire fighters from around the country will converge on Emmitsburg to witness their loved one’s name enshrined on the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial, and receive the thanks from a grateful nation. The Walkersville Volunteer Fire Company will support three events throughout this weekend.
On Saturday afternoon, the annual Red Helmet Ride will start from our parking lot, and ride to the NFA. Please come out and give your support to the hundreds of riders and the brother and sister fire fighters they are honoring.
Quint 11 will be supporting the Annual Candlelight Vigil on Saturday night, and the Memorial Service on Sunday morning at the NFA as well.
We are honored to support this event every year, and ask that you remember those who lost their lives protecting us all.
