Honor Guard

Members are versed in line of duty death protocols and honors, flag etiquette, fire service related traditions and ceremonies as well as in military styled ceremonial presentations which are occasionally integrated into city public addresses. The Honor Guard strives to embody our department’s core values of Pride, Respect, Integrity, Dedication, and Empathy. PRIDE. Our team is dedicated to not only aiding our department in times of need but is humbled when able to assist other departments in their times of need.
