In Memory

On November 6, 1854, Pioneer Hook and Ladder Company No. 1 was formed with a volunteer crew of 18 men; so started the proud tradition of organized fire companies in the City of Saint Paul. This tradition and pride has been earned at a very high cost in terms of personal injury and death.

It is in memory of the brave members of the Saint Paul Fire Department who fearlessly gave their lives in the line of duty, with hopes that the sacrifices they made will be remembered forever.
