National Wildland Firefighter Day

Established July 2, 2022

The newly established National Wildland Firefighter Day recognizes the dedication of wildland firefighters, including federal, state, local, Tribal, military, rural, contract, and support personnel. The selected date is especially meaningful as it occurs during the Week of Remembrance, which is held annually June 30 to July 6, and serves as an opportunity to renew our commitment to wildland firefighter safety as we remember those who have fallen in the line of duty.  

National Wildland Firefighter Day is designed to recognize the hard work and devotion of all wildland firefighters and support personnel who are the backbone of the wildland fire community. These men and women work to save lives, property, infrastructure, and precious natural and cultural resources every year, and we are incredibly thankful for their professional skills and efforts.   

This toolkit provides graphics for social media that are ready-to-post or can be customized. Short videos highlighting our wildland firefighters and support personnel are ready to share along with an updated banner for your next virtual meeting background. It also includes text that you can use for social media posts, templates for an email from leadership, scripts for radio ads, and a proclamation template.
