In addition to the funeral services offered, the Honor Guard focuses on preserving the names and memories of those who have gone before. Standing now, on the Rutherford County Courthouse lawn, is the first Firefighters Memorial monument. Over the years, this monument has been filled with the names of individuals who have served their communities as firefighters, and is now completely full.
We are now in the process of creating a new monument that will be placed at Isothermal Community College. The first monument will be moved to join the second, and there will be space to continue this tradition of commemorating those who have given so much for decades to come. Our fundraising efforts are also to assist in completing this project. Once complete, we can resume our annual Memorial Service held in October.
