The New Jersey Fallen Firefighter's Memorial will honor firefighters who have made the ultimate sacrifice. The memorial will be the entrance plaza to the New Jersey Fire Museum. The project is still in the fundraising phase of construction.
Opening date depends on our fund-raising success.
Primary Design Features: The primary design features include the surrounding wall, sculptured panels, Honor Roll of Fallen Firefighters, centerpiece sculpture and plaza of personalized granite pavers.
The surrounding circular wall will be faced in granite and divided into four equal sections with openings at each point of the compass.
Centered on each section of the wall will be engraved panels depicting the past, present and future of firefighting. Flanking these engraved panels will be a series of granite panels with the Honor Role of Fallen Firefighters, presenting their names and hometowns in chronological order of loss.
The centerpiece of the memorial will be a bronze sculpture.
The plaza will be covered with personalized granite pavers.
Memorial pavers are a lasting personal tribute to your family, friends, and loved ones, and will remain a permanent part of the memorial’s history for future generations to honor.
