Local firefighters to pay respects to fallen comrades

FALLEN firefighters will be remebered this Friday, with commemorative services to take place across across the state for National Firefighter’s Remembrance Day.

On the Gold Coast, local firies will gather for a special service at 10am at the Mary Immaculate Catholic Church in Ashmore.

Stations across the city will also fly flags at half mast on Friday and firefighters will pause for a minute’s silence at 10am.


QFES Commissioner Lee Johnson said firefighters everywhere made a commitment to put their lives on the line to protect and save others, and those whose lives were lost during operations would never be forgotten.
