10/14/11 145 W, 5 I - + 7 - 2 Remembering Our Fallen Firefighters

As we turn our thoughts this weekend to the fallen members of the fire service and their families and peers for the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend, let's look back at those who gave all in Raleigh and Wake County. We've lost eight firefighters from five departments from five departments since 1956, in ranks from Firefighter to Asst. Chief, and from causes ranging from motor-vehicle accidents to heart attacks. Learn more about them.
