HONOR GUARD MISSION
The mission of the Bexar County 2 Honor Guard is to provide honor, dignity and respect for our fallen brothers and sisters of the fire service and their families. To respect and represent the flags with pride and integrity, while maintaining a commitment to the traditions of the fire service.
The Bexar County 2 Honor Guard was established in July of 2017 with 6 members. Most of its members have attended the National Honor Guard Academy. It is a week long training academy that covers drills, ceremonies, flag etiquette, funeral planning, and the history and traditions of the fire service.
Not only do they honor fallen brothers and sisters of the fire service, they also take care of their families in their time of need. The emotional impact at such a time can be overwhelming. The honor guard has established an action plan that covers all the ceremonial activities and most family needs for fire department funeral services so nothing is overlooked. Bexar County 2 Honor Guard provides continued support to the family long after the funeral services. This is provided for our members and any department that needs assistance during their trying time.
In addition to funeral services, the Bexar County 2 Honor Guard participates in memorial services, Posts Colors at special events, march in parades, and attend new station grand openings and assists in planning ceremonies for our members.
