International Fire Fighters Day
May 4 is observed as the International Fire Fighters Day annually to honour fire fighters who risk their lives to extinguish hazardous fires threatening life, property and environment. This day was created in 1999 to honour 5 fire fighters who lost their lives while putting out wildfires in Australia the previous year. It is celebrated on Saint Florian’s day. Saint Florian was one of the first commanding fire fighters in ancient Rome.
