Firefighters Memorial Grove commemorates Western Australian firefighters who have been injured or lost their lives, as well as the service offered to the community by all firefighters.

Two life-sized bronze statues modelled on Western Australia's firefighters were unveiled at the firefighters memorial grove at Perth's famed Kings Park on the 4th May 2014.   The statues reflect the sorrow felt by firefighters losing a comrade, and are a fitting tribute to the courage and selflessness of the State's fire service personnel.

Standing about 180cm tall, the statues are part of an enhancement of the memorial that now includes a commemorative curved stone wall and a linking pathway to other monuments.
