The Annual Missouri Fire Fighter Memorial Services are scheduled for May 20 and 21, 2017. The annual Candlelight Service will be Saturday evening May 20, at 9:00 p.m. The Annual Fire Fighters Memorial Service will be on Sunday, May 21, 2017 at 10:30 AM. Both services will take place at the state’s Fire Fighter Memorial in Kingdom City (the memorial is located just northwest of exit 148 off I-70). Two firefighter line of duty deaths from 2016 will be honored and two LODD names missed from the late sixties. The FFAM will also be remembering thirty-six firefighters/members that passed away during 2016.
Regardless of weather, the service will be held. If rain prevents activity at the memorial it will move to the Auxvasse Elementary School, five miles North of Kingdom City off Highway 54. It is the first overpass going North from the memorial and you can see the school off to the West when taking the exit ramp.
