California Firefighters Memorial Ceremony being held October 5, 2013. [Details]

11th Annual California Firefighters Memorial Ceremony

Every year, uniformed firefighters, family members and dignitaries from throughout California gather together during the California Firefighters Memorial Ceremony in historic Capitol Park, adjoining the California State Capitol in Sacramento, to pay tribute to those firefighters who gave their lives to protect the lives and property of Californians. Continuing a solemn and sobering autumn tradition , the sacrifice of hundreds of California firefighters is remembered on the brushed limestone walls of the California Firefighters Memorial at the State Capitol in Sacramento.
This beautiful tribute, embodying over 10 years of work by California Professional Firefighters, depicts both the heroism of the profession and the anguish felt when a firefighter falls in the line of duty. The California Firefighters Memorial carries the names of more than 1,200 firefighters who died in service since California became a state in 1850.
Please save-the-date for this year’s California Firefighters Memorial being held October 5, 2013.
