Honor Guard

Formation


The Red, White and Blue Honor Guard was formed in late 2004 following the untimely death of Driver Operator Barrie Niebergall. Many members of the organization found it fitting to honor his fire service legacy by promoting what he stood for: Honor, Integrity, and Tradition. An initial group of 4 started the program, with up to 7 members participating. Local 4325 worked in conjunction with the Fire District to provide a professional group to honor the members of the fire service and perform at community events.
