Mesa Fire Department Honor Guard & Pipes and Drums

2012 IAFF Memorial Service, Colorado Springs, CO

 

The Mesa Fire Department Honor Guard was officially formed in 1996. Since then, this dedicated volunteer group has continued to uphold and promote the tradition and decorum of the fire service.

The Mesa Fire Department Honor Guard was originally formed to pay tribute and honor to Mesa Fire Captain Chuck Inman who lost his life after a noble and courageous battle with cancer.  Captain Inman passed away on December 16, 1996.

Since the inception of the Mesa Fire Department Honor Guard, our size and recognition has grown.  We have been honored to have participated in numerous local and national events including:

  • The Annual International Association of Fire Fighters National Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial in   Colorado Springs, Colorado
  • National Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial in Emmetsburg, Maryland
  • September 11 Memorial Ceremony at BankOne Ballpark (2002)
  • The Congressional Fire Service Institute's National Meeting 2001, Washington D.C.
  • Arizona Emergency Services Association Annual Conference
  • The Annual Arizona Fire Chiefs Association Conference
  • Arizona Fiesta Bowl Parade
  • The Professional Fire Fighters of Arizona Memorial Service
  • Arizona State Fire Marshal Fallen Firefighter Memorial Service
  • Arizona State Fire School  
  • Mesa Public Safety Foundation 

 

The Mesa Fire Department Honor Guard is a voluntary association of Professional Firefighters.  We are honored to assist and/or participate in memorial services for deceased Firefighters throughout the region. 

Due to the voluntary status of our members, we are significantly limited in our ability to participate in other events (such as parades or conference openings).
