VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (Sept. 28, 2021) Every October, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation sponsors the 40th Annual National Fallen Firefighters (NFF) Memorial weekend, Oct. 1, 2 & 3, the official national tribute to firefighters who died in the line of duty (LODD) during the previous year. As dusk turns to dark, landmarks, homes, fire service organizations, and businesses across the country will "Light the Night" in red, to honor fallen firefighters.

VBFD is asking residents and businesses to illuminate their homes and facilities, by replacing their porch light, with a red light bulb to show support of those who died in the Line of Duty, and to then share their photos on the Fire Department's Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/VirginiaBeachFD.

Local facilities/landmarks that will light up in red for "Light the Night" include:
