Firefighters Fountain Update

Firefighters Update 006

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

Found:  April 13, 2016

Last year, the memorial section of the Firefighters Fountain was redesigned and constructed.  The reason was that, unfortunately, they ran out of room for names of firefighters who had fallen in the line of duty.

The new memorial was built between the fountain and old memorial.  It is made of aluminum and contains more room for names.  The old memorial had the names removed and replaced by plaques commemorating historic moments in the history of the Kansas City Fire Department.

Something that I found out about this fountain since the original post is that the outermost ring of water jets are made from fire hose nozzles.

The original post can be found here.
