International Firefighters' Day 2023

Thursday, May 4th 2023 is International Firefighters' Day - a day to honour those who gave their lives keeping communities in Wales safe.

Today, as ever, we honour all firefighters who have lost their lives in the line of duty and appreciate and acknowledge the bravery and dedication of all fire and rescue service personnel.

We will be holding a minute’s silence at midday today, in memory of all firefighters who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.

On Sunday, May 7th, Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service stations have been invited to sound off their sirens for 30 seconds followed by another minute’s silence, as part of the annual ‘Sound Off’.
If you’re near a fire station at this time, please do not be alarmed.
