Fallen Firefighters Memorial, October 12

The Community Church in Harrington Park will be participating in the Fourth Annual Bells Across America for Fallen Firefighters.  We are inviting firefighters from Harrington Park and the surrounding communities to worship with us on Sunday, October 12 at 10 A.M., during which time we will thank, honor, and remember all firefighters, particularly the ones who have been members of our congregation.  We will conclude our worship service at 11 A.M. by tolling our bells.  Every October, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) sponsors the official national tribute to all firefighters who died in the line of duty during the previous year. The survivors of the fallen and thousands of fire service members gather for the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend in Emmitsburg, Maryland to honor the lives and sacrifices of these heroes.

The sound of a bell holds special significance for firefighters. Historically, the toll of a bell summoned members to the station, signaled the beginning of a shift, notified departments of a call for help, and indicated a call was completed and the unit had returned to the station.

Last year more than 100 fire departments from around the country and organizations participated in Bells Across America for Fallen Firefighters.  Come and be part of this new tradition that not only honors the memories of the fallen, but reassures the survivors that their loved ones will never be forgotten.

The Community Church in Harrington Park is located at the corner of Harriot Avenue and Spring Street in the Borough of Harrington Park, New Jersey. Please call the church office for further information –  201-768-2457. Website: cchpchurch.org.
