San Francisco Honors Fallen Firefighters
On Friday June 10, the City will hold funeral services in honor of fallen San Francisco Fire Department (SFFD) heroes Lieutenant Vincent Perez and Firefighter/Paramedic Anthony Valerio, who both died tragically in the line of duty last week. A funeral procession to Holy Cross Cemetery will follow funeral services.
In addition Coit Tower will continue to be lit until Friday evening to memorialize SFFD Lieutenant Vincent Perez and Firefighter/Paramedic Anthony Valerio of Fire Station 26. “Coit Tower and its storied history with the San Francisco Fire Department is a fitting location to offer a tribute to honor both Lieutenant Vincent Perez and Firefighter/Paramedic Anthony Valerio, two firefighters who dedicated their lives to protecting the people of San Francisco,” said Mayor Lee. “We are reminded how much the men and women of the San Francisco Fire Department have sacrificed and put their lives on the line for our City everyday.”
