Lentz Family discovering The Firemen's Monument Located On Comminwealth Ave Boston, MA

Bronze and Granite Firemenns Monument by Ted Clausen and Peter White
Vendome Firemen Monument (1997)

Commonwealth Ave Mall Dartmouth Street Ted Clausen and Peter White, Sculptors Bronze / Granite

A reminder of impending death penetrates and surrounds me as I approach this work of art, this memorial for all Firemen who risk their lives for all of us each day that they stand watch.

When that Bell Rings We are All the Same, We are a Team, We have One Job to do. FF Thomas W. Beck with Engine Co. 32 March 22, 1937 – June 17, 1972
2:35 PM There is smoke in the Café of the Hotel Vendome on Commonwealth Ave / Dartmouth

2:40 PM Fire Fighters arrive, finding smoke and flames

coming from the third and fourth floors
Fire Fighter Joseph F. Boucher, JRS January 10, 1944-June 17, 1972

2:45 PM District Four Reports Box 1571 a working fire 2:46 PM A second alarm is struck

Lt. Thomas J. Carroll Engine Co. 32
May 18, 1925-June 17, 1972


3:02 PM A third alarm is struck.
We save lives and property. We are no heroes. We do what we love. We do our jobs.
- Fire Fighter Charles E. Dolan Ladder Co. 13 September 6, 1924-June 17, 1972
We don’t talk about the tragic fires. It would be too much. We go home to our families.

3:06 PM A fourth alarm is struck.
Lt. John E. Hanbury, Jr. Ladder Co. 13 May 20, 1926 - June 17, 1972
“Our families know that each day could be our last. It’s just part of the work.”
FF Richard B. Magee Engine Co. 33 September 17, 1932 - June 17, 1972
“The worst is death, but you learn to let go. You wouldn’t be able to do your job.”

5:28 PM Without warning four floors of the Vendome collapse, burying twenty-five firefighters

“There is the unknown in every fire. You do your job, follow the plan: still something can go wrong.”
FF Paul Murphy Engine Co. 32 March 5, 1936 - June 17, 1972

2:00 AM Fire Fighters search the rubber until all are accounted for. Nine fire fighters are dead, sixteen are injured. “Investigators reveal that the Vendome did not collapse because of the fire, but from structural weakness.”
FF Joseph P. Sanivk Ladder Co. 13 August 8, 1924 - June 17, 1972
Sometimes you have to say “There’s nothing more we could have done.”
Losing a fire fighter brings back every other loss.”
