Welcome to our Heroes Remembered fundraising campaign; this effort is dedicated to honoring the brave men and women of Mesa’s Fire Department.

Each day, these dedicated individuals leave for work expecting everything to be okay, and their families eagerly await their return after each shift. Unfortunately, not all heroes come back home.

This memorial is a testament to the compassion and selflessness displayed by these fallen firefighters, who gave their lives to protect and serve others. It is a space where families, friends, and our community can gather to remember and pay tribute to Mesa’s heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.

About the Fundraiser

We invite you to join, the City of Mesa, United Mesa Fire Fighters, East Valley Firefighter Charities, Mesa Public Safety Foundation, and the Mesa Chamber of Commerce to commemorate the extraordinary contributions of our fallen our brothers and sisters. Your support will help create a lasting memorial that honors the sacrifice or our public safety professionals and their unwavering commitment to serving our others. Let’s ensure their legacy lives on; please join us in creating this solemn space together by helping us meet our fundraising goal of $200,000 for Phase I.
