REMEMBERING  THE FALLEN: FIREFIGHTERS HONORED IN MEMORIAL CEREMONY
KKTV, 9/17/2017

One hundred and ninety men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice were honored in Colorado Springs Saturday.
Jeremiah Frye was a Cimarron Hills firefighter-paramedic before his untimely death last year. His fiance and their son attended the memorial on Sept. 16, 2017.

"It's a beautiful day. I think I did more crying when other people's names were read than even my own husband's," said widow Keri Taylor, whose husband Rob was a firefighter-paramedic before succumbing to lung cancer.   READ MORE

More than 1,300 Californians have died in the line of duty, serving as firefighters.

Their names are etched on the California Firefighters Memorial, in Sacramento's Capitol Park and this weekend, that monument is gaining 31 more names.

Every year, the California Fire Foundation, which erected the memorial 15 years ago, adds names to the brushed limestone wall.

Carroll Wills, communications director for California Professional Firefighters, said most of the names in any given year are those of men and women who have fallen in the line of duty in the previous 18 months.   READ MORE
