Sixth Annual Memorial Service This Weekend

update: check out the 2012 info

Don’t forget about Saturday’s fallen firefighter ceremony in downtown Raleigh. The Sixth Annual North Carolina Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service is preceeded by a procession of fire apparatus at 10:00 p.m. The annual parade starts on Hillsborough Street and concludes at the North Carolina Fallen Firefighters Memorial at Nash Square.

The memorial service starts at 1:00 p.m. The names of two fallen firefighters will be added: Chad Eric Greene, 34, died on November 4, 2009, after responding to a motor vehicle crash. He was the Deputy Chief of Union Cross Fire Department in Forsyth County. Richard Adam Miller, 24, died on December 29, 2009, while participating in physical fitness training at Beltmont Fire Department Headquarters in Gaston County.

Over 225 members of the state’s fire service have died in the line of duty since the first recorded death of Washington volunteer firefighter Edward Peed in 1902.
