Hoosiers gathered together to remember fallen firefighters Wednesday.
The 15th annual Reading of the Names was held at the Fallen Firefighters Memorial Plaza downtown.
Each year, the names of those who lost their lives while in the line of duty are read. The historic bell tower sounds after each name is read and a firefighter places a carnation at the base of the memorial.
This year's service also honored fallen IMPD officer David Moore. Moore died a few days after he was shot during a traffic stop earlier this year.
Moore’s father thanked Fire Station 8 for being the first on the scene.
"They cared for him and they were compassionate about it. They were so compassionate and caring about it that even though, I understand, they lost him three times they, kept him going.
"Because of their efforts there are at least seven people I can tell you about who now lead a better life," said Spencer Moore, David Moore's father.Officer Moore’s family was able to donate his organs because the firefighters were able to get him to the hospital alive.
