Fallen Firefighters of Idaho


Firefighters dedicate their lives to the protection of life and property. Sometimes that dedication is in the form of countless hours volunteered over many years, in others it is in the many selfless years working as a career firefighter. In all cases, firefighters risk the ultimate sacrifice – their lives.

It is the mission of the Idaho Fallen Firefighters Foundation to create a memorial which will forever honor, celebrate and inspire the spirit, courage and service of Idaho firefighters – past, present and future.
