National Fallen Firefighters Memorial

Every October, the National Fallen Firefighter 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.

Video production is provided by CrossCreek Television Productions. The scope of the production has grown to 15 standard def cameras including a Steadicam, jib, and two remotely operated cameras. This is the second year that Peter Roof of Alt Gobo ran one of the hand-held cameras.

Excellent autumn weather held the entire weekend. It was quite a moving event and difficult to not be touched by the profound grief that brought these families to the service.
