Firefighters’ National Memorial Day September 13th

posted in: Home Page News | 0

Our flags at Archie Stouffer ES are lowered to honour Firefighters’ National Memorial Day on September 13, 2020.

Trillium Lakelands District School Board buildings are lowering flags September 11-14 to half-mast in memory of those who have lost their lives through acts of terror in Canada and around the world.

This day pays tribute to the firefighters who risk their lives to keep Canadians safe. The second Sunday in September of each year has been designated since 2017 in memory of firefighters who have fallen in the line of duty.
