The Rescue

Noted local sculptor, David Adickes, designed a memorable bronze statue on a four-sided granite base portraying a firefighter's rescue as he is locked in on a ladder while handing down a baby to another firefighter on the ground. The base of the sculpture memorializes all firefighters lost in the line of duty.

If you have questions, suggestions, or helpful historical information for Scott, please feel free to email him at Thanks to Scott for honoring the memories of these Houston heroes!
