Shiawassee Firefighter’s Memorial
The Shiawassee Firefighter’s Memorial is organized exclusively to raise funds for and oversee construction and maintenance of a memorial/museum dedicated to the firefighters of Shiawassee County with special focus on the firefighters who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. Plans for the memorial include a structure to display and preserve the 1921 LaFrance fire truck. This was the first gas powered fire truck owned by the City of Owosso, which serviced the City for several years. The structure will also include plaques to recognize the following firefighters who were killed in the line of duty: Fred Ross, City of Owosso, 4/1/1900; Roger Wenk, Byron Fire Department, 4/10/1977; and Elmer Hodge, City of Owosso, 1/12/1981. The memorial will also include various related artifacts and benches to serve as a park for visitors. Please find more information on our Facebook page at Shiawassee Firefighter’s Memorial.
