Know what a Watch and Warning mean!

• Watch: Stay extra vigilant have a means to get to shelter within 1-2 minutes.

• Warning: Take action NOW! Get in. Get down.

For all the parents and caretakers of younger kids out there, ask your children what they would do in a Tornado Warning. We find children often know from their good practicing of tornado drills in schools to get low and cover up. Feel free to learn from them some too today!

Congress created the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to lead a nationwide effort to honor America’s fallen firefighters. Since 1992, the non-profit Foundation has developed and expanded programs that fulfill that mandate. Our mission is to honor and remember America’s fallen fire heroes and to provide resources to assist their survivors in rebuilding their lives and work within the fire service community to reduce firefighter deaths and injuries.

Each October, the Foundation sponsors the official national tribute to all firefighters who died in the line of duty during the previous year. Thousands attend the weekend activities held at the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, Maryland. The Weekend features special programs for survivors and coworkers along with moving public ceremonies.
