The memorial, first proposed in 2001, is beautiful in its simplicity and currently under construction. Arranged in a key-hole shape, a cement path will lead to a circle 343 inches in diameter, representing the 343 firefighters who lost their lives in the World Trade Center tragedy Sept. 11, 2001.

The northwest arc of the circle will be hemmed by three flags - the US flag, Montana state flag, and firefighters flag - and three 4' by 4' stainless steel Maltese crosses. The center cross will bear the name of the memorial, flanked by a cross representing career firefighters and another representing volunteer firefighters. The newly planted trees will grow at either side of crosses.
