October 8-9, 2022, we encourage everyone to pause and reflect on the dedication and sacrifice given by the brave firefighters who lost their life in the service of our community.
Starting in 2023, the firefighter memorial weekend will be moved to May 6-7. A combination of weather uncertainties and the frequent threat of an October federal government shutdown is behind the move of the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend from its traditional October date. Because of this, the Herriman City memorial display at J. Lynn Crane Park will be delayed and moved to the May date with more details to come.
