    The Colorado Springs Professional Firefighters Local 5 are proud to be the host local for the IAFF Fallen Firefighter Memorial. 
    The 2014 IAFF Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial Service will be held Saturday, September 20, 2014.  Online registration begins June 1, 2014 - please visit www.iaff.org for signup information.

    The mission of the IAFF Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial, which is located in the shadow of Pike’s Peak, is to honor the sacrifice made by IAFF members who serve as professional fire fighters and emergency medical personnel who have given their lives in the line of duty. The IAFF will ensure that the ceremony remains an uplifting one for the families, friends and loved ones, and that it celebrates the lives, heroism and accomplishments of our union’s bravest of the brave.

    For those interested in being apart of the ceremony, we would like to request your participation in the 28th annual IAFF Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial Observance and the Fire Apparatus/ Motorcycle Procession preceding the observance. The 28th annual observance will take place Saturday, September 20th, 2014 at 1:00 pm in Colorado Springs.

    The procession, which is not open to the public, will take place in two sections. Fire departments and motorcyclists may elect to participate in either section or both. The first section is sponsored by the Wind & Fire Motorcycle Club, Rocky Mountain Chapter. Fire apparatus and fire fighter motorcyclists will be escorted by law enforcement officials from Lakewood to a designated staging area in Colorado Springs following a brief early morning gathering.

    The second section of the procession is sponsored by the Colorado Springs Professional Fire Fighters Local 5 and the IAFF. It will depart from the staging area in Colorado Springs and arrive under police escort at Memorial Park signifying the commencement of the 28th annual IAFF Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial Observance.

    Fire departments who can commit fire apparatus to either section of the procession must complete a registration form found on our website at www.iafflocal5.com . Fire fighters interested in riding their motorcycles in either section of the procession must register individually at www.ridetoremember.org .
