The DOD Fallen Firefighter Memorial honors all DOD Firefighters (Active duty Military, Guard, Reserves and Civilians) that have died in the Line-of-Duty.
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 granite monument has a carving representing all four groups (Fire, Police, Corrections and EMS).
