At 10 a.m. Saturday, the Santa Barbara County Fire Department will dedicate the newly constructed Fallen Firefighter Memorial, located at Fire Headquarters, 4410 Cathedral Oaks Road in Santa Barbara.

Eight county firefighters have sacrificed their lives in the line of duty since the County Fire Department organized in 1926.

The dedication will honor the families of the firefighters and will allow the department to have a permanent fixture honoring the fallen.

Construction and planning of the memorial were made possible by funds generated through the Santa Barbara County Firefighters Benevolent Foundation.

The public is encouraged to attend.

For more information about the memorial dedication, email Capt. David Neels at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
