Dedication Ceremony to be held June 5 for Fort Worth Police & Firefighters Memorial

A citywide Dedication Ceremony for the Fort Worth Police & Firefighters Memorial, now under construction in Trinity Park off West 7th Street, will be held Friday, June 5 at 9:30 a.m.

Note to News Media:
Parking will be available to credentialed news media on the East bound lanes of West 7th Street. Please contact Margaret Ritsch (contact information above) if you plan to cover the event.

At the June 5 Dedication Ceremony, these 95 fallen heroes will be remembered through the reading of their names and the dates of their decease. Reverent choral music by Schola Cantorum of Texas, bagpipes, and the presentation of colors are also planned for the event, which is expected to be heavily attended by city leaders, peace officers, firefighters and the general public.

Massive bronze sculptures of a firefighter, police officer and riderless horse, will be unveiled at the Dedication. Adjacent to the sculptures will be two high walls of names that will list randomly all police officers, firefighters and marshals who have died in the line of duty. Designed by Fort Worth architects Gideon Toal, the Memorial will also feature black granite kiosks that will take visitors through several eras of Fort Worth history and tell the stories of some of our fallen heroes. A decomposed granite path winding through the trees will guide visitors to the sculptures and walls of names.
