The 37th annual National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend on Oct. 6–7 will honor firefighters lost in the line of duty the previous year. All this week, fire departments and landmarks across the country, from LAX to One World Trade Center, are “shining a light” in red to honor them. Staff from the production and facilities teams at The Clarice provided equipment and paired up with resident student firefighters at the College Park Volunteer Fire Department to help them light their building.
