On December 2, 2015, a terrorist attack in the City of San Bernardino left 14 dead, 23 injured (including two law enforcement first responders), and innumerable others traumatized. The attack was a direct assault on County of San Bernardino (County) employees in the Department of Public Health’s Environmental Health Services Division. Local, state and federal public safety partners responded to the incident, killing the suspects within hours of the initial attack; two members of law enforcement were wounded in the shootout.
The County wishes to honor the victims of this senseless act of violence with a memorial. The December 2nd Memorial Committee composed of survivors, family of victims, County officials, and first responders is leading the effort to build a memorial. The County has retained Community Arts, Inc., a San Francisco- based arts organization, to assist the Committee by issuing an Invitational Call for Submittals to interested artists, designers, architects and creative teams.
