The Wildland Firefighters Monument is in Boise, Idaho at NIFC.
This monument – born of an idea, designed with a vision and created with much labor and care – is a special place to honor firefighters and others who devoted their lives to wildland fire management.
It was built in the late 1990s and dedicated in May of 2000. The walkway through the monument mimics a ribbon shape to represent the purple ribbon worn in honor of fallen wildland firefighters. More than 325 plaques placed along the path pay tribute to those we have lost.
Three eight-foot bronze firefighters were created by a sculptor from the National Park Service. They stand in silent testimony to hard-working men and women on the fireline.
The Wildland Firefighters Monument is a sanctuary dedicated to those who gave their lives in the line of duty, protecting others and our natural resources.
