Fallen Heroes Day
VIRTUAL TRIBUTE - Fallen Heroes Day 2021: The 36th annual Fallen Heroes Day ceremony will be live-streamed on Friday, May 7, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. Please visit our Fallen Heroes Day page for details as well as the names of the 2019-2021 fallen heroes honorees.
In 1986, on the first Friday in May, Dulaney Valley sponsored Maryland's first Fallen Heroes Day. In 1990, the Maryland Legislature passed a resolution calling for a yearly commemoration of public servants; a day on which Dulaney Valley hosts a memorial service, attended by more than 1,200 people. The ceremony, held in the Fallen Heroes garden, commemorates the members of Maryland's Public Safety Community who lost their lives in the line of duty during the previous twelve months. Prior to the ceremony, Dulaney hosts the Healing Hearts Reception for the survivors, families and friends of the Fallen Heroes.
Fallen Heroes Day is the only statewide ceremony that recognizes all branches of the Public Safety Community. Dulaney Valley invites you to join us on the first Friday in May to honor those who lost their lives in the line of duty, to support the survivors, and to thank our everyday heroes - those who risk their lives to ensure our safety.
