FRANKFORT, Ky. (FOX 56/WKYT) – A ceremony was held in Frankfort to honor firefighters killed in the line of duty.
Tuesday morning, 14 new names were added to the Kentucky Fallen Firefighter Memorial.
The families of those 14 were all in attendance as well as coworkers, fire officials, and Gov. Andy Beshear.
The guests received a plaque, a rose, and a blanket in remembrance of the fallen first responders.
This year marked the 20th anniversary of the memorial opening in Frankfort. In that time, over 200 firefighters have been honored with their names being placed up on the wall.
Each speaker reflected on their wish to never have to add another name to this wall, but each said that until that day, they will be right here ready to honor each of their fallen brothers and sisters.
