New Hampshire Fallen Firefighters Memorial
On September 10, 2006 the New Hampshire Fallen Firefighter Memorial was dedicated to the memory of those New Hampshire firefighters who lost their lives while in service to their communities. After years of planning and seven months of construction the long awaited New Hampshire Fallen Firefighter Memorial was finally a reality. The Memorial is located on the grounds of the New Hampshire Fire Academy, 98 Smokey Bear Blvd., (formerly 222 Sheep Davis Road) in Concord, New Hampshire. Minutes from Concord’s Heights district, the Memorial is easy to find and is open to the public.
The Memorial was an idea introduced by the NH Corp of Fire Chaplains, nearly a decade ago. In the years that followed the Memorial project was past on to the NH State Fireman’s Association. After an exhaustive search a site and design was chosen with the largest challenge ahead, building the memorial to honor New Hampshire’s firefighters for half the projected cost. This web page will chronicle the extraordinary efforts made by Granite State firefighters of all ranks, career and volunteer, financial and material contributions from industry and committed support from public officials. Working together, a seemingly impossible goal was reached in under a year culminating in the dedication service.
