International Firefighters’ Day


May 4th is International Firefighters' Day.

International Firefighters’ Day first started due to the tragic deaths of five firefighters in Australia in December 1998. Today it has become a globally recognized day to celebrate everyone who serves in the emergency services.

May 4th was chosen in honour of Saint Florian the patron saint of firefighters. St. Florian was a Roman soldier in the 3rd century who was reportedly in charge of a special group of firefighting soldiers. The legend says that St. Florian put out a massive fire with only one bucket of water, saving a village from ruin. St. Florian is also known as the protector of those who have come in danger of fire.

A good way to keep firefighters safe is training. So, a little extra training is a perfect way to celebrate International Firefighters’ Day.

Stay Safe!
