Fire Chiefs and Colorado State Combine Honor Guard took to the stage to tribute fallen Colorado firefighters.
BY STEFAN KRUSZE
Every May the Colorado Fallen Firefighter Foundation honors and remembers men and women that have made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty in protecting the people of Colorado. Firefighters ensure the public safety and well being of the public in many cases putting themselves in harm’s way in order to save others. This year three more names were added to the Colorado Fallen Firefighter Memorial wall. Brett Anderson of Adams County Fire Rescue, James R. Schaefer of Arvada Fire Rescue and Aaron Lybarger of West Metro Fire Rescue were etched into the stone wall, bringing the total to a 150 names on the memorial. Family and friends of the fallen were accompanied by members from Arvada, Denver, Colorado Springs, Evergreen, South Metro and West Metro Fire Rescue to pay respect and tribute to the fallen.
