The 29th Annual Illinois Fallen Firefighter Memorial and Firefighter Medal of Honor Awards Ceremony is scheduled for May 10 in Springfield.
The Fallen Firefighter Memorial service will be held at the Firefighter Memorial on the grounds of the Illinois State Capitol to honor Illinois firefighters lost in the line of duty. Following the ceremony at the Capitol, the Medal of Honor Ceremony will take place at the Bank of Springfield Center.
These events follow this week’s Illinois Police Officers Memorial, which was held May 5 at the Capitol complex. Both memorial ceremonies bring scores of officers and firefighters from across the entire state to honor and remember their fallen brothers and sisters.
