Fallen Tulsa Firefighters Remembered

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

Fire departments across the country are honoring fallen firefighters, including in Tulsa.

Tulsa Fire Department held a memorial service to remember 18 firefighters who have died in the last 12 months.

Tulsa's fire chief said though the department didn't lose anyone in the line of duty this year, it's important to remember the families of the retired firefighters who have passed away.

Chief Ray Driskell said, "When you look at their longevity in life they live less than the average citizen and this is an opportunity to talk to their families and tell them we understand and we try to comfort them through the next several years and not just while we’re on the job."

The service is held each year in October.
