On Saturday, October 13th, 2018  the Wisconsin State Firefighters Memorial, Inc. Board of Directors will be honoring fallen firefighters from the State of Wisconsin by sponsoring the annual Final Alarm and Roll Call Ceremony and the Final Alarm Procession in Wisconsin Rapids. We respectfully request your presence at our ceremonies as we pay tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice while serving their communities as members of the Fire Service. The Final Alarm and Roll Call Ceremony will be conducted at the Wisconsin State Firefighters Memorial Park. It is located on 2nd Street South in Wisconsin Rapids beginning at 3:33 PM. At that time a memorial service will be held to honor the memories of the firefighters who have died in the line of duty in the State of Wisconsin. The names of all Fallen Firefighters listed on the Memorial Wall will be read from the previous 10 years along with the tolling of the Memorial Bell for each.
 
This is a very moving ceremony and a wonderful way to honor those members and their families. Prior to, or at the conclusion of the Final Alarm Ceremony, you are invited to check out the exhibits located within the WSFM visitor center.
At 6:30 P.M. Fire Department drivers planning to participate in the Final Alarm Procession are asked to assemble at the park in preparation for the 7:00 P.M. start of the procession. This procession makes a winding tour through the streets of Wisconsin Rapids and terminates with a drive-by of the Wisconsin State Firefighters Memorial Park.
