... to the people who dedicate their lives to helping you. People you depend on in an emergency who risk their
lives for you. These are your
firefighters and paramedics. They don’t like being called heroes. They say it’s just
their job. And they don’t like asking for help. So here’s
your chance.
 

Fallen Heroes

Nationwide, every year nearly a hundred firefighters and paramedics pay the ultimate price in their line of duty. Since 1857, in the Miami Valley alone 67 have laid down their lives doing their job. They were fathers and mothers, sisters and brothers, sons and daughters, and your friends and neighbors. They didn’t ask anything in return. But they do deserve to be remembered. Please let us know if any of the following information on our Fallen Heroes is incorrect.
