On Saturday, September 26th, the California Fire Foundation premiered the 2020 California Firefighters Memorial Tribute. This moving video tribute commemorates 32 fallen California firefighters whose names are being added to the California Firefighters Memorial in Sacramento.
This video is presented as a memento to the families of those 32 individuals, in lieu of the annual live Memorial Ceremony that was scheduled for September 26th. The California Fire Foundation made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Memorial Ceremony because of the restrictions on gatherings imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
All 32 of this year’s honorees will receive their formal in-person tribute at the 2021 California Firefighters Memorial Ceremony.
