Luckie Street Fire
Davis Brothers Restaurant
Atlanta, GA
Various tributes are being sought in recognition of the second worst loss of life suffered by the Atlanta Fire Department.

The goals are:
  1. To properly honor the four men who sacrificed their lives and all those whose lives were changed forever
  2. To keep history and its lessons learned alive
  3. To avoid history repeating itself.

National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF)

All four firemen who perished in the Luckie Street Fire were approved for inclusion in the National Roll of Honor database which is in the process of being updated.  

They will also be added to the upcoming Memorial Park. The NFFF is currently trying to raise approximately $400,000 to add in the pre-1981 names of fallen firefighters. Once funds are in place they plan to begin that work.

Several of the Luckie Street Firefighters and two of the widows described their personal experiences. This video is being completed and will be sent to archives soon. We're also working on the possibility of making the video available to the public.

The Atlanta History Center's board of directors voted to accept the Tragedy on Luckie Street book and supporting documents into their archives. This historical fire now has been documented in detail and has a trusted home for safe keeping as well as public records and research.

Georgia Historical Marker
The process of gathering information, signatures, and sponsors is underway. Once everything is complete a request will be submitted to the Georiga Historical Society. Their board of directors meets once a year (in the fall) to consider applications. A limited number of markers are approved annually. 

Fees: The full cost of each historical marker is $5,000

Below is an example of a Georgia historic marker created for the 1946 Winecoff Fire:
