Back to Memorial

State Capital Grounds, Little Rock, AR

The Arkansas Fallen Firefighters memorial was designed to honor of the men and women who have given their lives in the line of duty.   This memorial is sited on a predominant location on the State Capitol grounds.

The design includes not only the names of the fallen men and women, but honors all who serve their community with a bronze sculpture centrally located within the memorial on a pediment water feature. 

Additionally, there is an amphitheater which will seat 100 people for special events.  The amphitheater and memorial wall is composed of limestone; the paving is constructed of white granite with a bronze Maltese cross in-filled with red granite.  The memorial names are engraved in black granite slabs. 

The sculpture is composed of four larger-than-life figures representing a centered historic firefighter holding a nozzle which will dispense water into the fountain.  This figure is surrounded by three other figures representing a modern firefighter, a forest service firefighter and a female firefighter paramedic holding a child.
