Fallen Firefighters

FirefighCFD Patch Blue.JPGters choose to work under the most dangerous conditions imaginable, whether rushing into a burning building or providing emergency rescue services. When a firefighter dies, we feel a collective sense of loss as we recall their bravery and commitment to keeping our community safe. This site honors and remembers our fallen firefighters for their supreme sacrifice.
