The Topeka Fire Department held their annual Fallen Firefighters Memorial Ceremony today.

The event was part of Bells Across America for Fallen Firefighters.

Historically the bell sound calls members to the station. The bells are used in the ceremony to remember each fallen firefighter.

“I love doing the memorial ceremony every year just because I think a lot of people forget the past and there area lot of people who have given their lives for this community,” said Topeka Fire Marshall Michael Martin. “I think it’s very good for us to once a year look back on those people and pay them some tribute.

Right after the ceremony the fire department invited people to stay and learn more about what it’s like to be a firefighter.

The open house had a CPR training, demonstrations on fire safety, and more.
