The Government of Canada establishes Firefighters’ National Memorial Day
News Release
 

August 25, 2017
Regina, Saskatchewan

 

As a tribute to the firefighters who risk their lives to keep Canadians safe, today, the Honourable Ralph Goodale, Minister for Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, announced the formal establishment of Firefighters’ National Memorial Day.

Minister Goodale was accompanied by Michael Fougere, Mayor of Regina; Robert Kirkpatrick, President of the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation; Lloyd Zwack, President of the Saskatchewan Professional Fire Fighters Association, on behalf of the International Association of Fire Fighters; Ken Block, Fire Chief of the City of Edmonton, on behalf of the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs; Richard Kent, Commissioner of Saskatchewan First Nations Emergency Management, on behalf of the Aboriginal Firefighters Association of Canada; Graham Pawlett, National President of the Canadian Volunteer Fire Services Association; Serge Poulin, ‎Strategic Planning Manager of the Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Centre.

The second Sunday in September of each year is now designated in memory of firefighters who have fallen in the line of duty. On that day, the Canadian flag will be half-masted on all federal buildings and establishments.

The Government of Canada recognizes the dangers firefighters often face when carrying out their duties, and the ultimate sacrifice of firefighters who have given their lives in the line of duty.

Firefighters’ National Memorial Day will commemorate their courage, their selflessness, and their unwavering commitment to serving our communities.

 

Quotes

“Firefighters put their safety on the line in service to Canadians. Firefighters’ National Memorial Day will allow us to commemorate those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, and with the new grant program created in our last Budget, we will demonstrate our support for their loved ones on a national scale.”

- Honourable Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness

“In honour of Canada's fallen firefighters and on behalf of their families, we are truly grateful for the proclamation to name the second Sunday of every September, the date of our annual ceremony, as ‘Firefighters National Memorial Day.’ We sincerely appreciate the efforts of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Minister Ralph Goodale who have demonstrated our government's appreciation of the sacrifice and commitment of firefighters in this country, and what they do for their local communities.”

- Captain Robert Kirkpatrick, president of the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation

Rail Safety Tips


1 ● SPEED MISPERCEPTION


Because of their size, trains appear to be much farther away and travelling much slower than their actual speed. Don’t be fooled!


2 ● TRAINS CAN'T STOP QUICKLY


The average train needs at least 2 km to stop. Trains can stop, but they can’t stop quickly!


3 ● TRESPASSING 


Taking a shortcut across the tracks or being on railway property is illegal, and trespassers can be seriously injured or killed.


4 ● WEIGHT RATIO


An average freight train weighs over 5,500 tonnes. Compare that to a car, which weighs about 1.5 tonnes. A train hitting a car is like a car hitting a pop can.


5 ● RAILWAY CARS


Stopped railway cars can move at any time. If you’re on one or near one when it moves, you could lose a limb—or worse, your life.


6 ● TUNNELS AND BRIDGES


Tunnels, bridges, and trestles are designed only for trains. Trespassers can be seriously injured or killed.

 

7 ● OVERHANG


Trains can carry loads that are wider than the railroad cars themselves. They can have chains, straps or other equipment that may extend outside the car. If you are standing too close, you could get hit.


8 ● ANY TIME IS TRAIN TIME


Trains do not always run on schedule. They can run at any time, on any track and come from either direction.


9 ● CN POLICE NUMBER


Together we can help save lives! If you witness any unsafe situation near a railroad, please call 1-800-465-9239.
