Other Firefighter Memorials and Commemorations in the Ottawa Region

By other, I mean aside from the Canadian Firefighters Memorial and the Ottawa Fire Fighters Memorial. I have found some other commemorations to firefighters within the Ottawa/Gatineau area and 50 kilometres of their borders.


"This sculpture by artist Michael Kinghorn reminds us of the dangerous conditions regularly faced by rescue workers."


"This sculpture by artist Michael Kinghorn engages with the word "overhaul" in two ways. A term frequently used by firefighters, overhaul refers to the stripping of walls and floors in order to search for trapped heat. Similarly, the layers of this sculpture gradually dissolve to reveal differnt textures
and metals."

On Wellington Street West stand 18 marble sculptures based on the theme of fire hydrants. The one on the south side of Wellington Street West at the junction of Garland Street, specifically commemorates firefighters with a pair of boots and a coiled hose atop a hydrant.
