This year’s International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial ceremony honored six Los Angeles County Fire Department fallen heroes: Battalion Chief Mark Tolbert, Fire Captain William Knott, Fire Fighter Specialist Samuel Neubauer, Fire Fighter Paramedic Randall Duarte, Fire Fighter Brian Ballentine, and Pilot Michael Fournier.
Interim Fire Chief Anthony C. Marrone and Fire Fighter Specialist Craig Little joined hundreds of distinguished guests and IAFF members to celebrate the life and legacy of fallen first responders at Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on Saturday, September 17, 2022.
This year, 469 members who died in the line of duty from January 1, 2019, to December 31, 2020, were recognized for their bravery and distinction.
Each year, the IAFF hosts this memorial ceremony to honor and remember IAFF members made the ultimate sacrifice while serving their communities.
