DC Firefighters
Memorial Helmet Project

 

The DC Fire & EMS Department has lost 102 firefighters in the line of duty since 1856. There is currently no memorial in the District of Columbia honoring these firefighters’ ultimate sacrifice. The DC Firefighters Memorial Helmet Project memorializes every DC firefighter who died in the line of duty with the installation of memorial helmets and plaques on streetlights at the locations of their ultimate sacrifice. You can read their stories here. 

 

To see a map of the locations, click on the LODD Locations box here.

See media coverage about the project here.

We also support the DC Fallen Firefighters’ Memorial Project, which is dedicated to erecting a permanent memorial in honor of the Firefighters’ lives that have been lost in the line of duty.

This project is a partnership between:
