2016 CALIFORNIA FIREFIGHTERS MEMORIAL
On Saturday Oct. 15th, the California Fire Foundation hosted the annual California Firefighters Memorial Ceremony in Capitol Park, the historic grounds of California’s State Capitol in Sacramento.. The annual ceremony honors individuals whose names are being added to the Memorial Wall – either from the previous year, or from earlier years. This year 29 names were etched into the Wall. As it did when the Memorial was unveiled, the ceremony features a solemn procession from the Capitol steps to the Memorial site. Every California governor, from Gray Davis to Jerry Brown, has participated in Memorial ceremonies.
