Tulsa Fire Department Memorial

Posted: Updated:

All over the United States fire departments are remembering their fallen men and women both active and retired. For the 16th year, families were honored for their loved ones service with the Tulsa Fire Department. This year we have fifteen retirees pass away and their families couldn't be more honor to be apart of this day. 

"To me it's just a tribute to the guys and all the years that they served," says Pat Young. 

Young lost her husband to cancer this year. He served 21 years on the fire department and made tons of memories for his family. This ceremony was apart remembering the fun times these firefighters gave the department. But more than that it was a chance to honor the families that sacrificed their loved one being home. Since 2004, 202 Tulsa firefighters have passed away. So, these fifteen families have someone to call on when they need some support and the fire department will never forget them.

"Your family members are still riding with us today on the fire trucks. Their memories are there. They will be in grained in us. We will never forget who they are," says Tulsa Fire Department Chief, Ray Driskell.

This ceremony kicks of fire prevention week. It runs through October 13.
