Police/Fire Mass for First Responders
A reception will follow in the event center.
All are welcome to attend. Those who serve in any of these professions are invited to come in uniform if they so choose.
Sponsored by the San Francisco Fire Department, the San Francisco Police Department & the San Francisco Sheriff Department.
The 1946 Herbert Hotel fire resulted in the deaths of four firemen, in addition to more than 30 people injured. A Mass honoring the sacrifices of these first responders was celebrated for many years following the fire. After the 9/11 attacks, the observance grew to incorporate remembrance of this event and all first responders.
