The first day of calling hours for two West Webster firefighters who were killed in the line of duty begins at 6 p.m. Friday.
News10NBC learned on Thursday, Lieutenant Mike Chiapperini died as the result of a single gunshot wound.
Firefighter Tomasz Kaczowka died from two gunshot wounds.
Friday's calling hours were for firefighters and police officers only, but due to the overwhelming response, the calling hours for Friday have been opened to the public.
Thousands of first responders from across the country are expected to attend.
The community will also have a chance to pay its final respects on Saturday. Calling hours on that day will be held at Webster Schroeder High School from noon to 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
According to the West Webster Fire Department's website, parking could be limited at the school, so you're encouraged to carpool.

Funeral services for Chiapperini will be held at Webster Schroeder at noon on Sunday.
Kaczowka will be laid to rest on Monday after a service at Saint Stanislaus Church on Hudson Avenue.
