with a Commemorative Brick

We welcome you to join us in recognizing a family member or friend along with the Fallen Heroes of San Mateo. Buy a brick to honor those who have served or are currently serving in the military, public safety, or to offer support for these heroes. These brick pavers will be located at or near the entrance to the Memorial that will be located in Central Park.

About the Commemorative Brick Campaign

The purpose of the Fallen Heroes Memorial is to recognize San Mateo heroes who gave the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country and community.

The memorial includes five columns that come together to form the Remembrance Poppy. Those killed in the line of duty will be honored by engraving of their name on one of the poppy columns, along with your Commemorative Brick.
