Fallen Firefighter’s Memorial services


Every 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 National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend in Emmitsburg, Maryland.

This is the third year that Peter Roof was operating a hand-held covering the two memorial services. This year there were a total of 13 cameras in the switch. This was still in standard definition but in the widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio. The program was shown on a large LED screen at the edge of the venue plus sent live on two satellites and streamed on the web. Clip is a moving 2:30 highlight reel used as a roll-out at the end of the final service. (Photo by Bill Green for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation)
