Memorial to Chesterfield Firefighters to be Dedicated
A memorial to honor Chestefield Fireman and Emergency Service Workers will be dedicated later today at the County Government Complex. Charles Fishburne reports.
The 30-foot-wide curved brick memorial has a black granite top, a lantern with a gas-burning flame and the names of those who died in the line of duty.
Palumbo: I knew all of them.
Former Batallion Chief David Palumbo.
Palumbo: They were dedicated to the cause of helping others, every one of them.
Today at one o'clock, the memorial will be dedicated to Joseph Newsome, Bradley Curtis McNeer, Patrick Mason and Joseph Sullivan, Jr.
Palumbo: And all of them had that common goal of wanting to serve and help others.
Chief Palumbo headed up the drive to raise the money and build the memorial.
Palumbo: We have a place to memorialize their names and so that we will always remember these people.
