Welcome to the Internet home of the Wisconsin Fire & EMS Memorial Park. Please take time to look around at all the points of interest we have provided. Just follow the links and enjoy the tour. We encourage you to tell others about this site and to make plans to visit Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin to see the Park in person.
The mission of the WFEM, Inc. is to establish and maintain a memorial honoring all first responders in the State of Wisconsin, recognizing not only those who have given their lives as the ultimate sacrifice, but also to honor those who have and continue to, serve their respective communities.
Every year approximately one hundred firefighters die in the line of duty in the United States. The Wisconsin Fire & EMS Memorial Board of Directors has chosen to provide a unique and lasting way to pay tribute to first responders from the State of Wisconsin who have made this ultimate sacrifice while in service to their communities. This tribute has taken the form of a Memorial Park dedicated to preserving their memory.
The vision of the WFEM was to create a park with a natural and scenic setting to house a memorial to our firefighting heroes from across this great State of Wisconsin. The serenity of the setting allows park visitors to be alone with their thoughts and emotions and at the same time realize that their loves one will never be forgotten.
