Today is the feast day of St Florian – the patron saint of firefighters. This day is now widely recognised as International Firefighters’ Day.
We remember the sixteen Tasmanian firefighters who have died whileon duty.
We also honour the men and women of the Tasmania Fire Service and firefighters past and present around the world who devote their lives to serving others.
Please take a moment to thank your local firefighters for all they do to protect the community.
