The IAFF and Colorado Springs Local 5 are committed to making the Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial ceremony an uplifting experience for the families, friends and loved ones that celebrates the lives, dedication and accomplishments of those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

With the addition this year of 168 fallen fire fighters who made the ultimate sacrifice, the Wall of Honor will include 2,976 members who have died in the line of duty since 1976.
