This 20-foot monument to firefighters everywhere is the centerpiece of Memorial Park, just east of downtown Colorado Springs. Installed in 1987, it depicts a firefighter descending a ladder while cradling an infant in one arm.
Nationally renowned sculptor Gary Coulter, who earned a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Kansas, has created a commemoration that epitomizes the courage and bravery displayed daily by professional firefighters across our continent. This is one of two firefighter sculptures in Colorado Springs crafted by the late artist.
