Giving Back to the Community

The Wilmington Firefighters Foundation provides opportunities for our firefighters to offer assistance to community members struck by tragic events. The firefighters that respond to catastrophic incidents that forever change the lives of their patients become emotionally tied to that incident. Because of this, the firefighters that respond to the incident do not experience the closure that others more closely related to the victims do with the passing of time. The Wilmington Firefighters Foundation reaches out to the victims of such incidents to find and meet their needs. This allows the firefighters to continue their dedicated service by providing much needed care and support to those affected by extreme circumstances.

The memorial also features a piece of steel from the World Trade Center as the centerpiece to remember the fallen firefighters and public servants who were lost on 9/11. The memorial is located at WFD Firehouse #2 on Park Avenue in front of Empie Park. Please stop by and visit the memorial anytime.
