Local 421?s Honor Guard is made up of a dedicated group of men and women. The Honor Guard demonstrates their dedication to the fire service through pride, honor and professionalism. They are dedicating to honoring all that serve or have served our noble profession.
The men and women of Local 421? s Honor Guard are not appointed to serve as members of the Honor Guard. They request to be members and freely volunteer their time, offering to assist someone else during their time of need, while taking time out of their personal life to show their respect and admiration.
The dress uniform, in which they wear, is intended to be an example of the respect, honor and dedication of all Lansing Fire Fighters past and present. Once dressed in this uniform the Honor Guard member(s) will as always, show the ultimate respect to the families that are in a state of mourning or respect to our Nations Colors.
To be an Honor Guard member, the fire fighter must show dedication, patience, hard work and excellent military bearing. A probationary guardsman will have to acquire an adequate number of hours to showing their dedication to the program, prior to receiving their Honor Guard Badge and serving as a ?Full Time? Honor Guard member.
Currently there are eight members in the Lansing Fire Department IAFF Local 421 Honor Guard.
