A minute silence held for Fire Fighters who have lost their lives during Covid-19 pandemic Wreaths were laid at the National Firefighters’ Memorial at St Paul’s in London as fire stations across the UK and internationally fell silent at 12 midday to mark Firefighters’ Memorial Day, organised jointly by the Fire Brigades Union and the Firefighters Memorial Trust. Firefighters and control staff stood outside their workplaces sounding their sirens whilst holding a minute’s silence for the 2,300 UK firefighters who have died in the line of duty, including nine firefighters in the United States and the four firefighters in Italy who have lost their lives during the coronavirus pandemic.
