Today, Nahant American Legion Post 215 lowers our Flag to half-mast in honor of National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Day.
Each year on the first Sunday of October, we honor fallen firefighters who made the ultimate sacrifice saving and protecting their communities. The National Fallen Firefighters Monument, located in Emmitsburg, Maryland, pays tribute to all the valiant firefighters in the United States that have been killed in the line of duty.
In observance of National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Day, the President directs the flags of the United States to be flown at half-staff at all local and state buildings, installations, and grounds throughout the Country from sunrise to sunset on Sunday, Oct. 4, 2020.
