The memorial is the creation of many Wyoming Firefighters with many firefighters donating time to construct the memorial. The rocks used in the construction are from 23 counties, all BLM Districts, all National Forests, the Wind River Indian Reservation, and both National Parks in Wyoming.
The Maine State Federation of Firefighters constructed the memorial in 1998, with support and assistance from many other fire service organizations in Maine. The firefighters memorial commemorates and recognizes the contributions of Maine firefighters who have died both in the line of duty and otherwise.

The State Firefighters Memorial is a tremendous project that will make sure no one forgets the courage, bravery and dedication of Wisconsin firefighters. The park covers 7.5 acres located along the west side of the Wisconsin River, providing the peaceful and somber atmosphere the memorial requires. The park’s existing tall trees and rolling terrain add greatly to the tranquility and serenity of the location, making it the perfect place for the memorial.
The Washington State Fallen Firefighters Memorial stand watch over the Fire Training Grounds where every member of the fire service trains. A bronze tribute is secured to a granite boulder honoring the courage, boldness and dedication to the call of duty firefighters live out each day.
The granite monument has a carving representing all four groups (Fire, Police, Corrections and EMS).
The Memorial is located in front of the Patrick Henry Building. On the North side of the Memorial, a wall of names runs east/west, slightly elevated from the plaza, a subtle gesture that begins to create a more private space to experience the name of a loved one. A wide walkway runs adjacent to the memorial wall. Along the south side of the walkway is a low water feature that allows for a visual connection to the Capitol. The space and sound of the water maintains the individual’s privacy to contemplate the name on the wall. A bench along the fountain allows one to experience the entire wall of names, acknowledging as a group those who have sacrificed their lives to protect citizens of the Commonwealth.

The New Hampshire Fallen Firefighters Memorial was built in 2006, with the “Call to Brotherhood” initiated by the NH Corp of Fire Chaplains. The NH Fire service community helped to build the memorial brick by brick and is situated on the grounds of the NH Fire Academy. A large bell recovered from a church in Gorham NH is the center piece with memorial brick and granite. Granite slabs are engraved with the names of the NH Fallen and an eternal flame is lit 24 hours a day. The NH State Firemen’s Association maintains the memorial and conducts a memorial service each September to honor those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.
