08/03/14 1439 W, 1 I - + 8 - 1 Names on the North Carolina Fallen Firefighters Memorial


Who's listed on the North Carolina Fallen Firefighter's Memorial at Nash Square? There are 258 names by my count, and listed below. That is, those are names, dates, and department names from my database. The versions that appear on the memorial are a bit a different. There are no nicknames, and middle names are usually abbreviated. There may be some variation in department spelling. The notations of "year added" are also mine. Let me know if I've made any mistakes.

The memorial was dedicated in May 2006. Each year an annual ceremony is held at the memorial, and new names are added. The additions are both legacy fatalities that have been since documented, and line of duty deaths from the prior calendar year.
 

 

See the names below the "jump." And see this subsequent posting, with some data play.
