(San Antonio, TX) -- San Antonio now has a permanent memorial honoring firefighters who died in the line of duty. A dedication ceremony was held yesterday for the statue, which honors the 28 San Antonio firefighters who have lost their lives since 1896. The memorial depicts an overturned fireman's helmet atop a rounded base that contains the names of the firefighters. The memorial now stands outside the Fire Training Academy on Callaghan Road.
