National Firefighting Hall of Heroes

The museum’s sixth gallery houses the National Firefighting Hall of Heroes. On its walls are the names of thousands of American Firefighters who have died in the line of duty since 1981, the first year in which national records were kept. A computer database of the almost 9,000 firefighters who have died in the line of duty since 1800 is also available to visitors. Also on display in the Hall of Heroes are photos and citations for American firefighters recognized for acts of heroism by the editors of Firehouse Magazine, a national journal of firefighting. The gallery also includes a moving memorial to the firefighters and police officers who were killed in the attack on the twin towers of the World Trade Center in 2001.
