The Cincinnati Fire Department honored fallen firefighter Daryl Gordon on Monday by unveiling a memorial plaque dedication at Station 14.

Firefighters, city leaders and Gordon's family were present for the 9 a.m. ceremony to remember the fallen hero. The public also was welcome to attend.

The custom plaque is affixed to the side of the station as a reminder of his dedication to serving our community and of his sacrifice.

Gordon was killed while fighting a Madisonville apartment fire on March 26, 2015, after he fell down an elevator shaft.

District Chief Mark Sanders says Gordon's death is a reminder of the dangers firefighter face while keeping us safe.

Station 14 is located at 430 Central Ave.
