Sunday firefighters and their supporters will be joining others around the country for Firefighter National Memorial Day.
Moose Jaw Fire Department Chief, Rod Montgomery, said he was pleased to hear the announcement last month from Minister of Public Safety Ralph Goodale.
"I think for anybody involved it's certainly worthy to have that type of recognition. So we really appreciate what he's done. Certainly for the fire service in general everybody is appreciative of the recognition of that day."
Our local department members will be recognizing past and present firefighters in personal ceremony, and will be flying their flags at half mast to remembers those who have fought and continue to fight fires.
