Westampton Monuments

Teamwork Monument

Location: At the Burlington County Emergency Services Center on Academy Drive, off of Woodlane Road behind the Burlington County Library in Westampton Township.

Significance - This bronze-coated memorial at the entrance to the County's Emergency Services Training Center features a firefighter beside an emergency medical tecnician. Inspired by the heroic response to the events of 9/11/2001, the concept of "teamwork" was chosen to pay tribute to heroes past and present. The monument stands as a reminder of the dedication and spirit found in county firefighters and emergency services personnel.

Sculptor Brian P. Hanion of Toms River submitted the succesful bid on the project and created the memorial by using a "lost wax" technique, a labor-intensive method that involved forming a clay model, from which a mold was shaped. The mold was forwarded to the foundry in Chester, PA. At the foundry, a ceramic shell was created, into which bronze heated to 2,300 degrees was poured to make pieces of the statue. The 7 bart tall firefighter and slightly smaller medical technician are mounted on a granite base.

The statue was dedicated on October 18, 2006.

Directions: Take Woodlane Road to the vicinity of the Burlington County Library. Turn at the light onto Pioneer Boulevard. Turn left onto Academy Drive and follow signs to the Burlington County Emergency Services Center. The sculpture is in the front of the building.
