Washington State Fallen Firefighters Memorial Foundation

Honor Someone

The Washington State Fallen Firefighters Memorial Foundation (WSFFF) was established in partnership with the Washington State Fire Chiefs Association, the Washington State Council of Fire Fighters, the Washington State Fire Fighters’ Association and the Washington Fire Commissioners Association to establish a permanent memorial to the fallen fire fighters of Washington State on the Washington State Capital campus and to assist the families and fire departments of fallen fire fighters.

Washington State Fallen Firefighter Remembrances

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the fires service of Washington State will be unable to gather as planned on June 7, 2020, to honor members who died in the line of duty in 2019. While we are unable to gather in person, we join our hearts and thoughts with the families and departments of the fallen. Their memories live on. They are not forgotten. The Washington State Fallen Firefighters Memorial Foundation has compiled this program in their memory.
