Honor Guard

Firefighter Memorial

Respecting Our Fallen

The Gloucester Fire Department (GFD) Honor Guard was officially organized in 2002. The organization came about as a response to ensure that fallen firefighters and departed retired firefighters were given the honor and dignity they deserve at their funeral services. The GFD Honor Guard made its official debut at the Gloucester Veterans Day ceremony on November 11, 2002.
