||Members of the Wilmington Police and Fire departments played in a charity hockey game at the Wilmington Icehouse on Feb. 23. WPD Chief Ralph Evangelous will be among those playing. Proceeds will benefit construction of the WFD Memorial at the Empie Park Fire Station.
This will be the first annual game, and next year, game proceeds will benefit a police department charity.
Background on Memorial
The Wilmington Firefighters' Memorial will honor WFD firefighters who have died in the line of duty during the department’s history, along with the 343 New York City firefighters killed at the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. The memorial’s center piece will be a steel artifact recovered from the debris at the World Trade Center.
