The names of other firefighters that have served their communities for more than 20 years or retired due to disability, have their names enscribed in to other panels surrounding the sculpture.

The sculpture was created by Shahla Rahimi Reynolds of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Dedication of the memorial was done so on June 8, 2000.
