    Question Honor Guards

    My Fire Dept is in the process of starting an Honor Guard to use for LOOD and also when a member dies if the family wants the Fire Dept to do something we can help out.If any Fire Dept has an Honor Guard and can help me out that would be great.Thanks for your time..Artie Osniak..

    We just started an Honor guard here. We got official DoD training in how to hold military style funerals from the local American Legion. Your local vets org. should be able to help you too with everything you need to know. It takes very little modifying to convert military to fire service. Easy things like instead of a 21 gun sallute you ring a fire bell etc.

    Good luck.
