Firefighters Memorial


Wilmington Firefighters Memorial

The Firefighters’ Memorial was constructed to honor 7 of Wilmington’s bravest who lost their lives in the line of duty and the 343 NYC firefighters who perished during the tragic events of September 11, 2001. This memorial serves as a place of reflection and respect to all firefighters that have made the ultimate sacrifice.
The centerpiece of the memorial is a steel artifact recovered from the rubble of the World Trade Center in New York City. Surrounding this somber piece of American History are individual monuments honoring Wilmington’s fallen firefighters including garden spots, restful benches, and shade trees. The walkway through the memorial is constructed of pavers etched with personalized messages and the names of loved ones being honored or memorialized.
