International Firefighters’ Day

International Firefighters’ Day is observed on 4 May each year, to coincide with the feast of St. Florian, the patron saint of all firefighters.

On this day we pay our respects to volunteer and career firefighters who have lost their lives in the line of duty. It also provides an opportunity to acknowledge current and past firefighters for their extraordinary commitment, exceptional courage, and selfless pledge to serve their community.

The Firefighters Honour Roll contains the names of all the firefighters who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

Fallen Firefighters’ Honour Roll

International Firefighters’ Day Memorial Service

In honour of International Firefighters’ Day, DFES hosts an annual memorial service at the Firefighters’ Memorial Grove in Kings Park on the first Sunday in May. The service commemorates Western Australian career and volunteer firefighters who have lost their lives serving the community and are included on the Fallen Firefighters’ Honour Roll.

All current and retired DFES personnel, volunteers, families and friends are invited to attend the service to pay their respects.
