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 Memorial is made up of a larger than life statue of three firefighters in the search and rescue mode. The 10-foot statue sits on a marble Maltese cross, surrounded by a “Ring of Honor,” that is available to fire department and associations and families to honor deceased firefighters.
Raising over 19 feet in the air, is one of the memorials focal points, a stainless steel multifaceted Maltese cross, the national symbol of firefighters. Supporting this cross is the massive polished black granite obelisk. The obelisk’s pedestal is hand etched with a collage of firefighters in action, using many different types of equipment and in different firefighting situations. The two polished black granite wings, both left and right of the pedestal have been designated for the names of all our fallen firefighters to be permanently engraved.
A memorial constructed of brick, mortar, and bronze, embraced by brick pathways, flowers, shrubs, and trees.
