The artists created two bronze relief panels, which are displayed on either side of the visitors’ entrance of the fire station.  The larger panel depicts a complex scene of firefighters in the field, combating an urban fire.  The smaller panel shows firefighters at a station open house, interacting with a group of children.  To prepare for maki​ng the artwork, the artists spent time on the job with firefighters.  Their meticulous documentation of what they witnessed ensured that the fine details of uniforms, fire trucks and equipment were rendered as accurately as possible in the bronze panels.
