We remember those who served this city proudly but whose lives were cut short by the hazards of the job. We remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the name of protecting the citizens of St. Louis.


We remember. We commemorate. We honor.


The St. Louis Firefighter Memorial Foundation is organized to design, construct and maintain a monument to remember and recognize the members of the St. Louis Fire Department who have died as a result of a line of duty injury or cancer. The St. Louis Firefighter Memorial Foundation and this monument ensure the life and legacy of these members will never be forgotten.

The Statue

This statue, a project of the St. Louis Firefighter Memorial Foundation, will serve as a physical representation of the memory of those we have lost.

Meant to commemorate the 150+ St. Louis City Fire Department members lost since the department’s inception in 1822, the statue will consist of three firefighters supporting each other atop a marble pedestal. The names of firefighters, EMTs, and paramedics lost in the line of duty or to cancer will be engraved on one side of the pedestal while another side will house the names of volunteer members who died in the line of duty or to cancer. A third side will display the Firefighters Prayer. A Maltese cross made of commemorative bricks will provide the base for the statue. 


The statue will be constructed by Liberty Art Works, Inc., which was founded by retired St. Louis Fire Department firefighter, Robert Daus, Sr.

The project will be entirely funded by donations from supporters ranging from the corporate level to individual donors. Corporate donations can be made directly by contacting Tom Moore at 314-596-8646. The Foundation aims to raise $2 million.


Those who donate $300 or more will have the opportunity to add a personal message to one of the commemorative bricks forming the foundation of the statue. 


The St. Louis Firefighter Memorial Foundation is a 501(c)(3). All donations to the Foundation are tax-deductible.

Located in front of the St. Louis Fire Department Headquarters and Museum at 1421 N. Jefferson, the statue will be viewable from the street and accessible to the public on foot.
