Welcome to the Military Firefighter Heritage Foundation Website!

To recognize the Heritage of the DoD Fire Emergency Services we have established the DoD FES Lifetime Achievement Award and the DoD FES Hall of Fame. The purpose behind these awards is to recognize the members of the Department of Defense for accomplishments that directly impacted the Fire and Emergency Services. The Hall of Fame will be an induction style honor for those that have given their time and service for many years after retirement. The Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to an individual that has contributed significantly to the improvement and progression of the fire service.

Troopwalk

Lining the troopwalk leading to the Louis F. Garland DoD Fire Academy on Goodfellow Air Force Base are a number of large brick and metal pavilions. These pavilions were recently erected as shelters for the protection and display of the Academy’s unique collection of historic military firefighting vehicles. The trucks and pavilions form the centerpiece of a Military Firefighter Heritage Display being constructed on the west Texas Air Force base.

Fire Academy

Home to the Department of Defense Fire Academy, Goodfellow is a logical location for this memorial. Its placement along the troopwalk our fire students traverse to and from class daily is calculated to achieve the maximum, educational effect: we want our students to see this memorial as they go to class; we want them to contemplate the rich history of the vehicles, the proud heritage they stand to inherit as they become military firefighters.
