Firefighters Fountain

Firefighters 003

Location:  West 31st Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, Kansas City, MO

Found:  July 14, 2013

On the south end of Penn Valley Park.  The fountain was created to memorialize those firefighters that gave their lives in the line of duty.  There is a memorial located North of the fountain that consists of a stone and marble ring with a statue of a firefighter with his head bowed.  On top of each marble pedestal are the names of firefighters who lost their lives during performance of their duties.  Across the street from Penn Tower.
