1 May the 4th be with you today! It’s Star Wars Day.

2.Today is International Firefighters Day.

International Firefighters’ Day is a time where the world’s community can recognize and honor the sacrifices that firefighters make to ensure that their communities and environment are as safe as possible. It is also a day in which current and past firefighters can be thanked for their contributions.

International Firefighters’ Day is observed each year on 4 May.

On this date you are invited to remember the past firefighters who have died while serving our community or dedicated their lives to protecting the safety of us all.

At the same time, we can show our support and appreciation to the firefighters worldwide who continue to protect us so well throughout the year.
