Alabama Firefighter Memorial

Historic Site in Tuscaloosa

On June 11, 2003, the House and Senate of the Alabama Legislature passed a joint resolution designating that the Alabama Firefighter Memorial be placed on the beautifully landscaped grounds of the Alabama Fire College in Tuscaloosa.

On October 19, 2004, the dedication of the Alabama Firefighter Memorial became a reality. The bronze firefighter statue and Maltese cross were unveiled, along with the presentation of the Walk of Honor surfaced with personalized bricks donated by firefighters, friends, and families in recognition of Alabama’s fire service as part of the Memorial.

In 2006, the Joint Fire Council, with the help of public donations, erected two black marble obelisks on the grounds of the Memorial engraved with the names of Alabama’s fallen firefighters, dating back to 1901.

On June 2, 2012, the Terry Farrell Fund presented a section of World Trade Center steel to the Alabama Joint Fire Council for installation on the Alabama Fire College grounds as a permanent memorial to Firefighter Terry Farrell and the other 342 firefighters who perished on 9/11/2001.

The Alabama Firefighter Memorial is a tribute to the firefighters of Alabama who have given their lives in the line of duty and to firefighters nationally who serve with pride, courage, and honor.
