Camden County Residents Honor Fallen First Responders with New Memorial

GLOUCESTER TOWNSHIP, N.J. – Officials in Camden County are honoring the brave men and women who sacrificed their lives protecting their communities.

On Wednesday, May 30th, Congressman Donald Norcross, local officials, and families of fallen first responders gathered to unveil the newly constructed First Responder Memorial at the Camden County Regional Emergency Training Center in Gloucester Township.

Norcross says the new memorial will allow everyone in the community to give thanks and remember all the heroes who lost their lives in the line of duty working to keep all of us safe.

“These are difficult and dangerous jobs … but in-spite of that you have those around us that are willing to give up their lives so that we as a community can continue,” said Norcross.

The new memorial honors all first responders who have died in the line of duty dating all the way back to the early 1900s.

In total, the memorial features the names of 68 fallen men and women who will continue to be remembered for years to come.
