EMMITSBURG, MD – The U.S. Fire Service will honor one firefighter, who died in the line of duty, from Minnesota during the 38th National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service on Sunday, October 6, 2019. He is among the 92 firefighters who died in the line of duty in 2018 and 27 firefighters who died in previous years who will be remembered at the official national service at the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, Maryland.
