Shine your light for firefighters


The City of West Fargo invites the community to honor the West Fargo Fire Department and area firefighters on International Firefighters’ Day by Shining Your Light. On May 4, 2020, the world celebrates International Firefighters’ Day. This is a way to say thank you to our firefighters for all that they do to keep our communities safe.

For the first time, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) invites communities to celebrate firefighters by lighting their homes in “red” on May 4, 2020. We ask that you change your porch light(s) and share your #ShineYourLight4Firefighters story with us on social media as a thank you to all of the firefighters who are on the front lines every day, keeping us safe. Lighting up in “red” on May 4th would be an additional symbol of support to all of those who are there 24-hours a day, 7-days a week to protect us. Please let us know if you will be participating by filling out our form at

Also, on May 5, 2020, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation will be participating in Giving Tuesday Now. Please help the NFFF support firefighters and their families on May 5th for #Give2NFFFNow, a global day of giving.
