Artist Lynn Doyal was selected from the Art in Public Places Emerging Public Artists Program and commissioned to create an artwork that reflects the Fire Department’s Culture and Pride while building strong community relationships.
After many months of research and becoming familiar with the Boynton Beach Fire Rescue Department’s culture and operations, she discovered the department's services are not just about fighting fires as the public may perceive. Lynn discovered that the department is comprised of men and women of all ethnicities and races serving as one. Their fundraising and education efforts are centered on benefiting the community. BBFR has the ability to respond to “out of the ordinary” calls that require specialized equipment and training – collectively called Technical Rescue. Fire Rescue staff take pride in their identity as firefighters AND as members of specific groups and/or stations within the department.
