The Culver-Union Township Fire Department is now accepting community-purchased bricks to honor local firefighters. These bricks will be included on the fire department’s honor wall at the corner of Lake Shore Drive and State Street.
The bricks are for active and former firefighters, according to an article in the Culver Citizen. One brick can be purchased per active member or former member.
Those honored must have had at least 10 years of service on the Culver-Union Township Fire Department, held the rank of Chief, perished in the line of duty, passed away while an active member, or currently be an active member of the fire department per the bylaws set forth by the department.
Once placed, the bricks and the monument will be maintained by the fire department. No outside bricks, vendors or installers will be allowed unless approved.
If you need more details or information, contact the Culver-Union Township Fire Department Secretary-Treasurer Dave Cooper at (574) 952-2809.
