Indianapolis Professional Firefighters Local 416, in partnership with F.A. Wilhelm Construction, unveiled the sculpture Duty – Honor – Sacrifice on February 16, 2017. The cast-bronze sculpture was installed on the grounds of the newly renovated Local 416 campus and was donated by F.A. Wilhelm Construction as a permanent tribute and thank-you to Indianapolis firefighters and their service to the city. Duty – Honor – Sacrifice serves as a daily reminder of the 350 on-duty firefighters protecting Indianapolis each day.
Duty – Honor – Sacrifice was created by IFD active-duty firefighter and local artist, Ryan Feeney. As the owner and founder of Indy Art Forge, Feeney and his team create custom sculptures and furniture out of metal. Other pieces done by Feeney in the Indianapolis area include the Peace Dove sculpture for the Indianapolis Central Library, the Fallen Deputy Memorial located in front of the Marion County Jail, and the Bronze Eagle that can be found at the Indianapolis 9/11 Memorial. Feeney has been a firefighter in Indianapolis since 2002.
