Many of us are fortunate enough to be able to visit nice fire memorials,

sculptures and statues. Here are a couple we have in Fort Worth, Texas.

The bronze boots (FWFD Station 8) are called "United We Stand"

and the statue of the firefighter carrying a baby (FWFD Station 2),

which was paid for with donations from the community, is named "Save The Future."

Please share photos of memorials and statues you've seen.

Rosie's Engine is a memorial to all fallen firefighters from the state of Georgia. The names of all firefighters lost in the line of Duty up to 2009 are on the truck.
I didn't take these photos, but the California Firefighters Memorial in Capitol Park in Sacramento was very well done.
Beautiful stuff. Thanks, guys!

Beautiful work. You guys must be very proud.
Texas Firemen's Memorial on the grounds of the Texas State Capitol.

Very nice norm.
This Fire Fighters Monument Timecapsule is dedicated to the Volunteer Firefighters of Essa Township.
The vision, cooperation and team effort by The Thornton Firefighters Association members made this possible. From Jim Henry’s donation to provide support for the possibility of the project to the help and support of all the firefighters with The Thornton Firefighters Association. For the generous gifts and donations of those who made this Monument possible, Frank Gerrits of GERRITS ENGINEERING for his drawings that made it possible to acquire a permit to get the project off the ground. Great thanks and appreciation to Paul Brown at BARRIE METRO GLASS for his donation for the tempered polished glass and Phil Burt at CRYSTALS GLASS for his redesign and creation of the frost graphics application.
Special Thanks to Chief Paul MacDonald and Mike Galloway for their support and help to push the project through, Ken Matheson for first voicing the idea and Scott Ferguson for the specially made brackets that kept the project going.
It was a pleasure to work with all those involved and an inspiration!,
Congratulations to all for making this happen...
The blank polished Maltese Cross represents all Fire Fighters, the future firefighter...
