Public Urged to Sign Web-based Memorial Book Honoring Fallen Firefighters

Everyone across the U.S. and Canada is urged to show the families of fallen firefighters they care by signing a Web-based Memorial Book to honor those lost in the line of duty.

Signers of the Memorial Book at help make possible a $100,000 donation by Sperian Fire to honor the fallen heroes and assist their families.

Sperian Fire will make the donation, in the names of those who have signed the Book, to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation.

“Everyone everywhere is urged to sign the Memorial Book and show their support for those who have fallen and in support of the families they left behind,” said Bill Sokol, Vice President, Global Strategic Marketing, Sperian Fire.

“We’re not asking for financial support, only for your emotional support and less than a minute of your time,” he said.

Signers can also offer words of encouragement and remember individual fallen comrades.

Chief Ronald Siarnicki, Executive Director of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, said “This is a wonderful, thoughtful, and very much appreciated effort.” He signed the Book in honor of “fallen friends who will always remain in my thoughts and prayers.”

Captain Robert Kirkpatrick of Mississauga, Ontario, President of the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation said “the donation is the largest the CFFF ever received. Each and every firefighter should sign the Memorial Book to show their support. And it will take less than a minute to show that support.”
