World Police and Fire Games Memorial Service

Friday August 2nd 2013

World Police and Fire Games.A special Memorial Service is being held at St Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast, on Sunday August 4 as part of the World Police and Fire Games.

The service, at 6.30pm, will remember colleagues, friends and family who have lost their lives on duty in the Fire, Police and Prison Services in Northern Ireland and beyond.

People from all faiths are welcome to attend the Christian Service to acknowledge the commitment, sacrifice and risk to all who maintain safety and justice in our local community. The Cathedral Girls’ Choir and the Belfast Community Gospel Choir will both be singing as part of the memorial service.

Dale Ashford, Assistant Chief Fire Officer, Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service said: “As we welcome thousands of Fire, Police and Prison Officers from over 60 countries to compete in the 2013 World Police and Fire Games, it’s important that we take time to pause, reflect and remember our colleagues, friends and family, locally, nationally and globally, who have given the ultimate sacrifice and lost their lives on duty protecting their communities.

“We want to join with the relatives, friends and colleagues of the fallen Officers to show that their commitment to protecting their community has not and will never be forgotten. The Fire, Police and Prison Services in Northern Ireland work so hard to protect our local community and keep people safe and I hope that members of the public will join us in a poignant tribute to remember our fallen colleagues.”

The memorial service is free to attend and everyone is welcome to come and show their support but tickets must be reserved in advance.

To reserve your ticket, or if you have any questions about the service, please email or telephone 028 9260 0432. Each WPFG holds a Memorial Service to remember fallen colleagues during the Games.
