The 14th annual Fallen Firefighters Memorial service was held on Wednesday morning. The ceremony was to honor and remember Kentucky firefighters who have given their lives in the line of duty to protect the citizens of Kentucky.

The Red Helmets Courage motorcycle group rode after the service as a tribute to the firefighters who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Firefighters, family members, friends and supporters attended the memorial.

"These fallen men and women are like our brothers and sisters," said Ronnie Day, executive director of the Kentucky Fire Commission. "It's important for us to reflect and honor them, and also remember how they sacrificed their lives to protect others."

Kentucky's Fallen Firefighter Memorial was erected October 11, 1999 and includes more than 200 names of firefighters who have died in the line of duty.
