When a man becomes a fireman his greatest act of bravery has been accomplished.
What he does after that is all in the line of work.
~Edward F. Croker
The Firefighters’ Memorial was constructed to honor 7 of Wilmington’s bravest who lost their lives in the line of duty and the 343 NYC firefighters who perished during the tragic events of September 11, 2001. This memorial will serve as a place of reflection and respect to all firefighters that have made the ultimate sacrifice.
The centerpiece of the memorial is a steel artifact recovered from the rubble of the World Trade Center in New York City. Surrounding this somber piece of American History are garden spots, restful benches, and shade trees. The walkway through the garden is constructed of pavers etched with personalized messages and the names of loved ones being honored or memorialized.
Please join with us in honoring the brave heroes from both home and afar. There are several ways to show your thanks and support, or to remember a loved one. Please visit our donations page find out how you can make a contribution to this important endeavor.
