Excerpts from wcia.com:

Firefighters who lost their lives trying to keep others safe were recognized at the State Capitol. Leaders reassured families the state is standing behind them during one of their darkest hours. For nearly three decades, state leaders and firefighters honored those killed in the line of duty. This year, three fallen firefighters were honored.

Those honored were from Chicago, Christopher, and Bethalto. 

After the ceremony, firefighters marched from the Capitol to the Bank of Springfield Center for a Medal of Honor program.
