The Dedication

With introductions from partnership agencies, John Ferguson, a Decker Fire survivor along with others, dedicated this California Wildland Firefighter Memorial and the highway along side it on April 7, 1998. This marked the move forward to seek donations and plan the Memorial on lands donated by the USDA Forest Service.
