Fire Fighter Memorial Garden
Dimensions: Bronze figure on plinth, 78” tall; bronze bench, 14’ diameter x 15” tall
Media: Cast bronze, copper-nickel pipe, granite
Commissioned by: N. Highline Fire Department and the Beverly Park Community Club
A firefighter in firefighting gear salutes a fallen comrade as he is carried from a fire scene. He and his 45” tall granite plinth are surrounded and embraced by a 14’ diameter bronze bench. The top of the bench evokes the patterns of wood grain and of water, one being the element that is consumed by the fire, the other the element that quenches it. The face of the inner diameter of the bench reads: “This Memorial Is Dedicated To Fallen Firefighters Everywhere. For Those Who Have Given Their Lives in the Service of Others, We Are Forever Grateful.” The bench and figure are surrounded by a small garden of perennials and small trees and shrubs.
