Description: "Tradition" is a two-subject bronze sculpture. It includes a life-size firefighter standing proudly with one of the Denver Fire Department’s beloved comrades, 'Chief', the last firehouse dog to ride with the firefighters. The firefighter is in uniform with one leg resting on a fire hose while holding his helmet in one hand and his coat in the other. 'Chief' is looking up at the firefighter and wearing a collar from which the Maltese cross, a symbol of protection and honor, hangs. The sculpture incorporates the Denver Fire Department logo on the right side of the fireman’s shirt.
