Fly the United States Flag at Half-Staff on Sunday, October 4th, 2020 in Honor of National Firefighters Memorial Day
The United States Congress created the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to lead a nationwide effort to remember America's fallen firefighters. Since 1992, the tax-exempt, nonprofit Foundation has developed and expanded programs to honor our fallen fire heroes and assist their families and coworkers.
The 39th National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service will be held Sunday, October 4, 2020, to honor firefighters who died in the line of duty.
In accordance to Public Law 107-51, the American flag should be lowered to half-staff on Sunday, October 4, 2020 from sunrise to sunset in observance of National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service.
As used in this subsection — the term "half-staff" means the position of the flag when it is one-half the distance between the top and bottom of the staff.
