In Memoriam
Dennis T. Sullivan
1852 - 1906
 
By fire shall hearts be proven
Lest virtues gold grow dim
And his life by fire was tested
In life's ordeal of him.
Now California renders
The laurels that he won -
"Dead on the field of honor,"
Her hero and her son.

A marker in front of the firehouse reads:

San Francisco's fireman were the unsung heroes of the great disaster of 1906. Leaderless because Chief Dennis Sullivan had been fatally injured by the quake, with indomitable courage they battled for three days and nights the flames that were consuming the city.

Dedicated by Chapter No. 1 of the Ancient and Honorable Order of E Clampus Vitus, September 27, 5991 (1986).

The Dennis T. Sullivan Memorial Fire Chief's Home is located in the Lower Nob Hill Apartment Hotel District.
