B.C. firefighters remember the fallen

The memorial is held to honour and remember professional firefighters who have died in the line of duty.

The B.C. Professional Firefighters’ Association will host a memorial service Monday (March 9) for their fallen comrades.

The memorial is held to honour and remember professional firefighters who have died in the line of duty.

Firefighters and their families from across the province will take part in the memorial parade and service.

“It helps bring awareness to the dangers which continue to exist in the occupation of firefighting, despite technical improvements in firefighting protective equipment,” said Mike Hurley, president of firefighters’ association.

The parade marches off from the Black Ball ferry terminal at 11:45 a.m. and proceeds along Belleville Street to Government, Superior and Menzies streets to the rear lawn of the legislature. The memorial service begins at noon.
