Honor Guard


THe Honor Guard's sole purpose is to display Honor, and demonstrate the commitment, dedication, and tradition of the Fire Service.

We perform an array of services, including:

  • Presenting the colors
  • Flag folding
  • Casket watch
  • Ushers
  • Pallbearers
  • Drill and CeremonyBzQ57xTIIAEBKLR
  • Bell ringing

And a few more. We do our best to add to an event without being a distraction from the event.

We’ve been used in many different ways. The keys to our success are pride, professionalism, training, dedication & commitment.
