The Great Bend Fire Department Honor Guard was established in 2001 with the goal of representing all members of the fire department in the highest degree of professionalism, dedication, loyalty, honor and dignity. We strive to honor firefighters in life, as well as death, and to exhibit the best possible image to the entire community.
Our Honor Guard honors firefighters at funeral services for active and retired personnel as needed. We also provide comfort and compassion for the survivors. In addition to funerals and memorial services, the Honor Guard may be called upon to post colors, march in parades, attend social functions, badge pinning ceremonies or attend any other function requested and authorized. Our Honor Guard can also assist other agencies with funeral and memorial services when requested.
