A grateful Nation honors its fallen fire service heroes at the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial located on the campus of the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, Maryland.
Work is underway to expand the monument site to create the first permanent National Memorial Park honoring America’s fire service. A brick Walk of Honor winds through the Park, linking the national monument to the historic Fallen Firefighters Memorial Chapel.
You can help make this park a reality by sponsoring bricks on the Walk of Honor®.
Thousands of inscribed bricks bear names of individuals, departments and organizations. Others contain short messages chosen by their sponsors.
Several fire departments and organizations have donated sections to honor their members or remember fallen firefighters who made the ultimate sacrifice. A special FDNY section will honor all its fallen heroes, including those who died on September 11, 2001.
Visitors to the park should allow several hours to view all of the moving messages and tributes on the Walk of Honor®.
