The water fountain illuminates blue during the night. With white lights shining and the red from the Lanoka Harbor Fire Department's sign, the memorial lights up red, white and blue - a feature that was not planned, Ziemian said.

An American "flag of heroes" that will list the names of first responders was laid over the steel.

The memorial will have benches for the public to sit at and reflect in the future, Ziemian said. The department also plans to add another monumental stone on the left side.

There is a paver walkway in front of the memorial. The public will have the opportunity to purchase pavers and have a dedication inscribed.

To purchase a paver call the fire department at 609-693-4998 or Mark Amrozewicz at 732-575-7776.

Visit Lacey Patch later for video footage of the memorial ceremony.
