A bronze life-sized memorial on pillars of Colorado rose granite will forever mark the ultimate sacrifice these men and women made. Situated in Lakewood town center in Lakewood, Colorado, the memorial is engraved with more than 170 names of Colorado’s fallen firefighters. The fallen firefighters memorial will represent their deeds in dignity for all time.
The memorial shows a firefighter rendering aid to a fallen comrade while two others continue to battle the blaze. This signifies the necessity to complete the mission even while feeling the concern and grief for a comrade. Today there are hundreds of firefighters on duty keeping their communities safe while their fallen comrades are recognized.
