The Firefighters’ Comforter is a memorial quilt honoring the 343 active and three retired firefighters who lost their lives trying to save others. One hundred volunteers took more than 3000 hours and 600 skeins of thread to hand embroider the names of the fallen, 50 stars and the firefighters’ prayer on the front, and an inscription and firefighters’ cross on the back.
