Tribute to Firefighters

Girders from the collapsed World Trade Center were gifted to New Zealand and used in this memorial sculpture. The sculpture is by Graham Bennett and was unveiled in 2002, as part of the opening of the Firefighters Reserve located by the Avon River on the corner of Kilmore and Madras Streets.

The memorial is dedicated to all firefighters who have died in the course of duty.
