Commissioned by the Butler County Fire Chiefs Association as a memorial to men lost in the line of duty. The artist is George Danhires of Kent, Ohio. This life-size statue depicts a firefighter cradling a small child. Details in the statue are all frozen in bronze — the creases in the boot as the firefighter kneels with a rescued child, the twisted strap at his back, and the tread on the bottom of his boots. Financed by public and private donations, the memorial includes a plaque that lists 15 Butler County firefighters and EMTs who have died in the line of duty.
