Request the Honor Guard

SFDHonorGuardIn 1992, the Springfield Fire Department Honor Guard was founded with eight members. The last of the active original members have moved on, and now the Honor Guard has an authorized strength of up to 12 personnel.

The Honor Guard’s mission is to honor Fire Service members, past and present, the Springfield Fire Department and the United States of America with the highest degree of professionalism, loyalty and dignity. Members of the guard must display exceptional pride, dedication and commitment to the City of Springfield, the Fire Department and the firefighting profession. 

The Honor Guard meets and trains multiple times throughout the year. The guard exists to provide service to others. Sometimes that means raising the flag for our nation and sometimes it is to pay respect to, and offer support for, the family of a fallen brother or sister in their time of need.
