A dozen Sioux City firefighters have given their lives in the line of duty since 1884.

Those men were honored Friday afternoon at a Fallen Firefighters Ceremony at City Hall.

Fire Rescue Chief Tom Everett says those selfless men made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting the citizens of Sioux City:

OC……all that possible. ;17

Two of the current firefighters in the department have family members among the twelve on the list of fallen heroes.

Chief Everett says it’s important to remember that legacy:

OC….die in vain. ;21

The ceremony took place in the city council chambers.
