The redesigned site honors the 95 police officers, firefighters and marshals who have lost their lives in the line of duty since the city of Fort Worth’s beginning. A memorial for the fallen heroes is under construction in Trinity Park along West 7th Avenue and will be dedicated Friday morning, June 5.
The Fort Worth Police & Firefighters Memorial will honor three deputy marshals, 55 police officers and 37 firefighters, and it is designed with the flexibility to continue honoring individuals killed in the line of duty in the future.
The site allows friends and family members to write tributes to the fallen officers and firefighters and profiles each of them in a searchable database. The Balcom Agency designed the site and is also providing public relations services to the Fort Worth Police & Firefighters Memorial project.
"There's a need to pay tribute to the officers and firefighters who have made the ultimate sacrifice to help keep our community safe,” said the agency’s president, Stuart Balcom. “The Fort Worth Police & Firefighters Memorial will be that place of honor, and we hope the website we've designed will help make the entire community more aware of the everyday risks involved in protecting us all."
