Donations Needed to Help Preserve History

As with any structure, from time to time renovations are necessary for preservation.  The State of Connecticut Firefighter's Memorial has stood in its current form since 2002, and 14 years of weathering the elements have taken their toll.  The granite panels are deteriorating and the names of those who dies in the line of duty are quickly fading.  The Connecticut Firefighters Memorial Committee is launching a fundraising campaign with the goal of securing enough in donations to undertake the repairs currently needed.

Annual Ceremony Honors Line of Duty Deaths

Once every year, usually in September, the Connecticut State Firefighters Memorial Foundation holds its Annual Firefighters Memorial Service to honor Connecticut firefighters, past and present.  The event takes place at the Firefighter's Memorial at the Connecticut Fire Academy in Windsor Locks.  Each year, the names of more firefighters who have perished in the line of duty are added to the names already inscribed on granite tablets around the base of the Memorial.


The ceremony is always open to the public.
