Fallen Heroes Plaza dedicated on September 11, 2009 

On September 11, 2008, the City of Coeur d’Alene unveiled the first memorial component of the Fallen Heroes Plaza featuring two basalt columns representing the twin towers of the World Trade Center and an artifact from ‘Ground Zero.’ A groundbreaking ceremony was also held for the final phase at
Cherry Hill Park on September 11, 2009.

The memorial sculptures are dedicated to Idaho firefighters and law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty throughout Idaho’s history. The memorial area has five 12-foot-tall sculptures of public safety officers in a semi-circular pattern. Within this semi-circle, a half wall is located wherein the names of fallen firefighters and police officers are engraved. A memorial wall for donors, and an area for engraved pavers, is featured just outside the circle, lovingly, and with reverence, surrounding those fallen heroes.

They shall not be forgotten.




The development of Fallen Heroes Plaza was financed from private donations and supported by the
City of Coeur d'Alene through dedication of land, various goods and services, and maintenance.
The sacrifices made by Idaho first responders have benefitted every citizen.
