Every year around this time the nations fire service gathers in Emmittsburg Md at the National Fire Academy to remember those members of the fire service that were killed in the line of duty from the previous year. This year the nations fire service will be remembering 87 members that were killed in the line of Duty in 2014. To honor those members and members of our own company that are no longer with us the company has place a wreath of flowers at the station. This tradition which we began this year will be done each year on the memorial weekend. Normally the wreath will be placed at our memorial at the front of the station but because of high wind and heavy rain from a noreaster the wreath was placed in the station museum on the East St side of the building. We ask that you please keep those that have made the ultimate sacrifice and are being honored as well as their families in your thoughts and prayer this weekend.
