Today marks Firefighters Remembrance Day with services being held across the state – to pay tribute to the 60 firefighters who have lost their lives in the line of duty since 1877.

Queensland Fire and Emergency Service workers will pause for a minute’s silence during the commemorations – while flags will be flown at half-mast at fire stations.

The service for the Sunshine Coast will be held at Coolum Beach at 10am.
