The Wildland Firefighter Foundation honors those who have been killed in the course of protecting our lands, our homes, and our property. The Foundation’s purpose and mission are intimately linked to this concept. It is charged with maintaining the national monument located at the National Interagency Fire Center in Boise, Idaho. The Wildland Firefighters National Monument represents a physical manifestation of the honor and gratitude that the Foundation expresses.
When a death occurs, the Wildland Firefighter Foundation presents a statue to the family. Those statues are from us, the wildland community of interagency firefighters, volleys, and excellent private sector firefighters.
The statues are tangible evidence of our wildland firefighter community’s love and respect for our fallen brothers and sisters and promise of support for their families.
An online memorial of our fallen firefighters.
