Following years of discussion, the fire service organizations of Tennessee decided that the time to create a memorial was long overdue. A memorial to honor the memory of the many men and women who lost their lives in the line of duty while protecting our citizens needed to be completed.
The “Ribbon Cutting Ceremony” for Phase I of the Tennessee Fallen Firefighter Memorial was officially held on September 11, 2009 and was attended by approximately 700 dignitaries, family members, emergency service personnel and friends. Nashville Bag and Pipes and the Hendersonville Honor Guard helped to make the ceremony one that will be remembered by all in attendance for many years to come.
Phase II was dedicated Saturday, September 10, 2011. The ceremony included the unveiling of our statue created by Sculptor/Firefighter Scott Wise. In addition to our honoring our TN Fallen, the TFFM Board also added a memorial to honor the memory of September 11, 2001. The 9/11 Memorial contains a steel I-beam which was once a part of the towers at “Ground Zero” in New York City. The service and dedications we also special because it began a tradition of hosting a training event “Everyone Goes Home.” This annual event will help train our firefighters and remind them of the importance of being safe while protecting each community!
