A permanent thank you to firefighters who have given their all during the pandemic will soon grace the wall of Madison Fire Station 10.
That thank you is a mural made by Developing Artists, Murals and Alliances (or DAMA).
Veronica Figueroa, Executive Director of DAMA, helped design the mural with input from community members and first responders. She said it aims to recognize the brave men and women who put their lives on the line in the face of a pandemic.
"Part of the work was going to be really embracing the work of those who had to work tirelessly to support us during the pandemic," Figueroa said. Figueroa hopes the mural teaches future generations about this unprecedented time, and inspires them to be strong leaders, like the first responders pictured.
