Red Line of Courage

Thin Red Line“The meaning of the Thin Red Line of Courage”

As firefighters are periled, they place their lives second to those they protect. They are forced to face their own fears and grasp for every ounce of courage to perform the necessary task. “The Thin Red Line of Courage” represents the last ounce of courage firefighters find deep in their blood to conquer their darkest fears in order to save and protect life and property. The firefighters from the Apex Volunteer Fire Department designed and developed the “The Thin Red Line of Courage” in 1999. Today, it is displayed to show respect for firefighters injured and killed in the line of duty
