Delaware County LODD Memorial


Tuesday, February 13, 2018  March 16, 2018 is the last opportunity to purchase your Commemorative Memorial Brick to be placed in the Delaware County Fallen Firefighters & EMS Memorial at Rose Tree Park. The Memorial will be getting a face lift in the spring. See the attached flyers for where to purchase your brick.

The Firefighters and Emergency (EMS) Responders of
Delaware County are committed to honor the memories
of all Firefighters and EMS personnel who have made
the supreme sacrifice.

Our goal is to continually strive for excellence and seek to improve all Delaware County Firefighters and EMS personnel through innovation, education, team work and communication, while
making Delaware County a safer place to live.

The Delaware County Firefighters and EMS Memorial, located in Upper Providence Township, PA at Rose Tree Park was created as a tribute of inspiration, reflection, and acknowledgement of all those fallen heroes who died in the line of duty.

In early 2000, several members of the Firefighter and EMS
community throughout Delaware County came together and
pioneered a concept to support the families of those lost or gravely
injured while in service to the people of Delaware County either as
a career or volunteer firefighter/EMS individual.

The committee also sought to provide a place of respectful remembrance, in honor of those lost in the line of duty, and support those same fire companies and EMS organizations during a time of tragic need.

In October 2008, a dedicated area in Rose Tree Park was made possible in tribute to those Firefighters & EMS who have fallen in the line of duty.

The Delaware County Fallen Firefighters & EMS Memorial invite you once again to be a part of a special limited commemorative opportunity. A distinctive & permanent location at the memorial will be dedicated to incorporate your donated bricks.

You are invited to purchase a 4”x 8” brick for $50 in memory of a Firefighter, a loved one, veteran or for any special occasion.
Your contribution will be an everlasting tribute
to the community; those killed in the line of duty,
and all volunteer and career Firefighters and EMS
individuals. This is a limited offering and possibly
the last one, so reserve your brick now.
