emailed out across the world on January 4, 1999 due to the deaths of five firefighters in tragic
circumstances in a wildfire in Australia.
 Fire Safety Month is observed throughout October.  
See our pages for lots of fun and educational activities.

May 4 used to be a traditional Firefighters' Day in many European countries, because it is the
day of Saint Florian, patron saint of firefighters.

honour the sacrifices that firefighters make to ensure that their communities and
environment are as safe as possible. It is also a day in which current and past firefighters can
be thanked for their contributions.

International Firefighters' Day is observed each year on 4 May. On this date you are invited to
remember the past firefighters who have died while serving our community or dedicated
their lives to protecting the safety of us all. At the same time, we can show our support and
appreciation to the firefighters world wide who continue to protect us so well throughout the

By proudly wearing and displaying blue and red ribbons pinned together or by participating in
a memorial or recognition event, we can show our gratitude to firefighters everywhere.
