The British Columbia Professional Fire Fighters Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial was held March 9th 2015 in Victoria BC.
This year, sadly, there were 13 names of Fallen Brothers and Sisters added to this years memorial service.
The outside ceremony included speakers, Justice Minister Susan Anton, BCPFFA President Michael Hurley, Opposition NDP Leader John Horgas and Speaker of the Legislature Linda Reid among dignitaries at the event.
President Hurley says the ceremony at the Provincial Legislature gives Firefighters and their families the opportunity to express the profound respect they have for loved ones who died as a result of their work.
There are more than 3900 Professional Firefighters in BC.
