    Question Pallbearers instruction...

    If anyone reading this thread remembers...several years ago, there was a FF running a school which taught the the proper way to carry a casket, as well as your conduct during a LODD funeral. I believe it was down south somewhere.....
    Does anyone know if this school still exits? Or if there is something of a similiar nature being taught here in the states? I am vey interested in signing up for a class or seminar in all aspects of the proper and respectful way to conduct yourself, as well as the proper and SAFE way to carry a casket.

    When fire is cried and danger is neigh,
    "God and the firemen" is the people's cry;
    But when 'tis out and all things righted,
    God is forgotten and the firemen slighted.

    I know that PA Fireman magazine used to have the info to download but it's not on their website anymore.

    Here's the info from the PA State Fire Commissioner's office. Hopefully the info is in there that you're looking for.
