Roll Of Honor

The Greater Cincinnati Firefighters Memorial Park

 

The Greater Cincinnati Firefighters Memorial Park is designed to honor all the men and women who have served the community in the role of Firefighter. The memorial does not officially recognize any individual names as its original concept was to provide a place to reflect on all the sacrifices made, not just those that resulted in death.

 

You can visit the memorial at 537 Central Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45202.

 

The Cincinnati Fire Museum Roll of Honor

 

The Cincinnati Fire Museum Roll of Honor memorializes the extraordinary sacrifices made by firefighters in Greater Cincinnati. Here firefighters that died on duty and in service to their community are remembered by name.

 

This list is currently being expanded to include all fallen firefighters from the Greater Cincinnati area. If you have information regarding a firefighter you believe should be included on this list please contact the Cincinnati Fire Museum Historian. We will never forget those lost in service, please help us to honor our fallen heroes.
