Oregon Fallen Firefighter Memorial
|Every September, the Oregon Fallen Fire Fighters Memorial Ceremony recognizes all of the Oregon Fire Fighters who have died in the Line-of-duty. The memorial is located at DPSST in Salem, Oregon.
Line-of-duty-deaths have been approved for the memorial wall from as far back as 1881. The submissions include fire fighters from every aspect of the fire service, including: career, volunteer, wildland, structural, chief officers, company officers, and engineers. The construction of the memorial was completed and dedicated on September 9, 2006. The Oregon Fire Service Honor Guard has volunteered to serve as the conduit for the annual memorial ceremony that is held on the third Thursday of every September.
