IAFF: Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial

When: Sept. 14-18 2011

This weekend brings the 36th observance of those International Association of Fire Fighter members who have given their lives in the line of duty. Families from across the country will descend upon Colorado Springs and the Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial at Memorial Park (1605 E. Pikes Peak Ave., iaff.org) to pay their respects. The official ceremony kicks off tomorrow at 1 p.m., while the unofficial recognition will begin this evening along Tejon Street, when fire fighters take over the pubs and bars and raise glasses to their brethren. — Kirsten Akens
