Arizona Fallen Firefighters & Emergency Paramedics Memorial
In the past 113 years, 119 firefighters & paramedics have lost their lives in the line of duty. No statewide memorial exists. Forty other states have such statewide memorials. Recent losses include fire fighters, paramedics, forest service personnel and others, all dedicated to protecting Arizona citizens from fire, flood and accidents. The Arizona Firefighters & Emergency Paramedics Memorial will be a living memorial honoring early deaths and, sadly enough, preparing for continuous growth.
Open space will be integral to the site, allowing families, individuals and groups to have a quiet moment, to sit and remember and to learn about these heroes. 100% of donations made to the Fund will go directly towards memorial construction for these fallen heroes.
There is still money to be raised, read how you can still get involved to support the memorial, read letter from Rick DeGraw.
