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.
