Mount Kuring-Gai Firefighters Memorial Print Page
Monument erected in memory of the four National Parks and Wildlife Service officers who lost their lives fighting a bushfire in 2000. The memorial is a clear recognition of the value that that community places on the work undertaken by National Parks and Wildlife Service staff, both in bush regeneration and hazard reduction programs. In particular, the memorial commemorates the lives of those four officers whose work related directly to protecting the homes of local residents from bushfire.
In 2000 four New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service officers lost their lives in a hazard reduction operation at Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. 3 other officers were severely injured.
