Casper/Natrona County Fallen Firefighter Memorial. Casper Wyoming.

This is Casper Fire Station Number 1.  The fire station was built in the early 1970s as part of an urban renewal project when Federal and City funding renovated the former red light district of the Sand Bar in Casper.  The station replaced one two blocks to the south, which was Casper's original Fire Station Number 1.

When it was built, the east wall of the new fire stataion was deciated as a memorial to Casper and Natrona County's fallen firefighters.
