The purpose of this organization is to further the professional advancement of the fire service, to insure and maintain greater protection of life and the property from fire, natural and man-made disaster, or other sudden emergencies. We strive to meet these goals by:
An Honor Guard is a traditional component of the fire service, organized to help fire agencies appropriately observe the solemnities that come with the life of the firefighter: memorials, funerals, dedications, celebrations. The US flag, of course, is carried prominently, but the honor guard also carries a traditional firefighter remembrance flag, state flags, and ceremonial pikes and axes as well. In addition to the Fallen Firefighter memorial every October, the group plans to join in local parades annually, and be available to serve all of the fire districts here in Boundary County and the surrounding region.
Our Boundary County Honor Guard is a multi-agency effort, with current members from City Fire, South Boundary Fire, North Bench Fire, and Hall Mt. Fire. One of the most important reasons the Guard was formed was to foster relationships and strengthen ties between our local agencies. If the camaraderie of the group is any indication, that purpose is being realized.Read More
