“Significant reduction” in the number of fires between 2019 and 2020

International Firefighters’ Day (IFFD) was observed on May 4th, 2021 in St. Kitts and Nevis. 

 

Firefightersday.org says the observance was instituted after a proposal was emailed out across the world on January 4th 1999, due to the deaths of five firefighters in tragic circumstances in a wildfire at Linton in Victoria, Australia. 

 

The observance is also a time where the world’s community can recognize and honour the sacrifices that firefighters make.
