West Des Moines Fire Department
Des Moines, Iowa

It was important to the firefighters of the West Des Moines Fire Department that the memorial be somber but not sad. Together we hit upon the idea of working with the concept of a firefighter just having laid their gear down after a fire and in preparation for the next one, never to return. It was incredibly moving to be there at the unveiling of the statue and the ringing of the four fives.
