Let's Build
the Memorial
Together

About

“Now, it is our hope to honor them and their incredible sacrifice; to honor every Worcester fire fighter who has paid the ultimate sacrifice; and, in fact, to honor the very idea of service to the city of Worcester.”

In December of 1999, six city of Worcester Fire Fighters lost their lives heroically searching a burning warehouse for occupants.

Today, the Worcester Fire Fighters Memorial, Inc. continues to raise money to build a Memorial to honor these six men, as well as every fallen hero in our community, but we still need your help.

Once these funds have been raised, together we will celebrate the completion of an incredible community project.

The Men Who Gave Their Lives

The Memorial – An Honorable Design

Representing the six men who lost their lives, the Memorial features six encircled columns leaning towards each other and throwing light into a common point in the night. Constructed from limestone, the memorial will be set at the highest point of the park so that it can be seen from Grove Street and surrounding areas.

A Gift to the City of Worcester
