LODD Memorial

Firefighting & emergency rescues are dangerous & sometimes life threatening services that are provided by thousands of women & men all across Nebraska. Whether through volunteer or career service, the names of those individuals who have given their all in service to their community & perished in the line of duty will be forever remembered and honored through their being engraved on stately red granite tablets that stand at the head of the Nebraska Firefighters & EMS Memorial. The STORIES and HISTORY that these brave men and women were  a part of should always be celebrated and shared. As a part of the service of the Nebraska Firefighters & EMS Memorial, we want to facilitate the telling of those stories. Please click on the name(s) of your loved one(s), whether family, friend, or fellow hero, and add the stories, anecdotes, and memories that you share! Thank you for being a part of fanning the flames of the memories of these incredible individuals!

These lives will be forever remembered.
