Jeff Elliott, Senior Vice President, Engineering & Digital Technologies at AIMM is the Associated Producer of the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial which will be held in in Emmitsburg Maryland this weekend. He has been working with a team of volunteers to ensure the event’s live broadcast goes as planned despite the government shutdown.
According to firehero.org, “The shutdown closed the National Emergency Training Center (NETC) forcing the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to move events for Memorial Weekend to other facilities in Emmitsburg. It also meant the Memorial on the NETC campus was off limits.”
The Candlelight Service will now be held at 4:00pm on Saturday October 5, at The Basilica of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, Daughters of Charity in Emmitsburg. During the visit, the annual Presidential wreath laying will take place during the brief ceremony in front of the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial.
