The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation has unveiled a new feature at the memorial in Emmitsburg, Maryland. A Pre-1981 Section of Walk of Honor will recognize those fallen firefighters who died in the line of duty before the national memorial was created. Read how you can honor the fallen from that time HERE.

Take a look at some of the latest fireground videos in the FFN Weekly Box Alarm. Each offers areas of discussion for your crew.
