"To have our fallen firefighters placed on this wall means that we're not going to forget them, and the family members know that they can always come here and know that their family and their loved ones gave the ultimate sacrifice, and that the fire service memorializes them," said Carson City Fire Chief Bob Schreihans.

The ceremony concluded the week-long observance of National Fire Prevention Week in Nevada.
