October 2, 2021

America’s fallen fire heroes, who died in the line of duty, will be honored at the 40th Annual National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend, October 2-3, 2021 in Emmitsburg, Maryland. The names of 215 firefighters will become a permanent part of the National Memorial in honor of their sacrifices.

Chief White died in the line of duty on December 5, 2019 while operating at the scene of a structure fire in the Town of Potsdam.

On the evening of Saturday, October 2, the families of America’s fallen firefighters will gather for an emotional Candlelight Service. During the ceremony, a plaque bearing the names of the fallen will be added to the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial. The following morning, Fire Hero Families will participate in the Memorial Service where a grateful nation will honor the sacrifices of their loved ones at the National Memorial.

The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation will provide live satellite broadcasts, web streaming, and Facebook live of both the Candlelight Service and the National Memorial Service. The link is below.

Please keep Trudy, the entire White family and our brothers and sisters at the West Stockholm Fire Department in your thoughts and prayers as they honor Bob's ultimate sacrifice this weekend.
