The Bristol Fire Department and Bristol Volunteer Firemen’s Association announce the unveiling and dedication of the Bristol Firefighters’ Memorial on Sunday, July 10 at 9 a.m. at the Bristol Fire Station (8312 198th Ave.).

The memorial was developed in cooperation with The Bristol Group to commemorate the bravery, courage, honor and valor of Bristol firefighters past, present and future as a means of honoring the men and women who have served the community over the past 117 years. It consists of a walkway with a paver path to the front door of the fire station, a patio with sitting walls, and a landscape area featuring the department’s fire bell, which dates back to the department’s founding in 1899.

In the future, pavers forming the walkway will be available for members or members’ families to purchase for stamping to memorialize those members who served 10 years or more. Additional information regarding future plans will be announced at the dedication ceremony.

All current and past Bristol Fire Department members, their families and community members are invited to attend the dedication before the Bristol Progress Days festivities continue Sunday morning.
