2012 Wyoming Fallen Firefighters Memorial
Saturday April 14, 2012
The Wyoming Fallen Firefighter Memorial concept was proposed to state associations after the heavy fire seasons of 1987 and 1988; when many firefighters lost their lives. The memorial is the creation of many Wyoming Firefighters; artistic work being completed by Battalion Chief Ken Metzler of the Fremont County Firefighters, Yngve Hagstrom of the Riverton Fire Department, and Mark Davis of the Torrington Fire Dept. Many firefighters donated time to construct the memorial. The rocks used in the construction are from 23 counties, all BLM Districts, all National Forests, the Wind River Indian Reservation, and both National Parks in Wyoming. If you have photographs or information about our fallen firefighters, we would like to include them in our new memorial hall at the Wyoming Fire Academy.
