The City of Prescott invites residents and businesses to join us to “Light the Night” on May 6th to mark the annual Firefighter Memorial Weekend. This is the official national tribute to those firefighters who died in the line of duty during the previous year.
“We invite all landmarks, buildings, and families in the city to be a part of this national remembrance. City of Prescott new City Hall will join some of the most iconic buildings around the United States; such as One World Trade Center in New York City, the Reunion Tower in Dallas, and the LAX Pylons in Los Angeles to Light the Night for Fallen Firefighters,” said Fire Chief Holger Durre.
