Firefighters across North Tonawanda were honored this past weekend at the annual Fireman’s Day Parade. Organizers have been holding it for the past 38 years. For many, it is a day to recognized those who put their lives on the line to help others.

“I come here every year and I like knowing that the firefighters are there when I need them,” said Mary Martin, North Tonawanda Resident.

This year only a handful of people came out to watch the parade and while less people may have been here to watch it, many say it’s important to take time out to celebrate the local firefighters.

“I had a small kitchen fire in my house last year and they were great,” said Dave Sampson, North Tonawanda Resident. “They came fast and helped me when I needed them the most.”

In the parade this year there were politicians, firetrucks and even some old pumpers. For many it is a day they say they won’t soon forget.

“My kids love coming here and my 2-year-old son keeps saying he wants to be a firefighter when he grows up,” said Sandra Nichols, North Tonawanda Resident.

It is just a one-day event, but organizers are hoping people will remember the valuable work firefighters do every day. Helping to celebrate firefighters and the valuable work they do all year long.
