Equality in America

Two new bronze statues to the Montana State Firefighters Memorial have been situated at at Fireman’s Park in Laurel, Montana. They are kneeling either side of the entrance gates of the memorial.


The statues are of one male and one female firefighter kneeling in remembrance of those Montana Firefighters who have given the ultimate sacrifice and died in the line of duty. This balance of gender representation is unusual, especially in a role so often associated with strong brave men. This shared tribute speaks to a changing awareness of the many vital roles that are played by women as well as men.
