WILTON — International Firefighters’ Day is Monday, May 4, and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation is asking communities to thank their local firefighters by lighting a red light bulb on their porches.

The foundation also asks participants to share their #ShineYourLight4Firefighters story on social media as a thank you to all of the firefighters who are on the front lines every day, keeping people safe.

Community members may let the foundation know of their participation by filling out the form at https://www.firehero.org/international-firefighters-day/shine-your-light-for-firefighters/.

The following day, May 5, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation will be participating in Giving Tuesday Now, a global day of giving.

Red light bulbs may be purchased online at https://amzn.to/2XWm5oE.
