International Firefighters’ Day commemorates heroism

# Today marks the 25th anniversary of International Firefighters’ Day, honouring those who risk their lives to safeguard communities and property. Established in 1999, it commemorates the lives lost in a wildfire in Victoria, Australia, with the red and blue ribbon symbolising firefighters’ bravery. The day not only pays tribute to firefighters who have made sacrifices while serving their communities; it also recognises their service, reflect on their sacrifices, and reaffirms support for their families and communities worldwide.
