Honour Guard


Honour Guard

    Mission Fire/Rescue Service Honour Guard was established under the Direction of Retired Fire Chief Ian Fitzpatrick to honour Fire Chief Frank Ryan at his funeral.  The Honour Guard continues today volunteering their time for duty.  They are a ceremonial unit of the Mission Fire/Rescue Service and report directly to the Fire Chief.  They are composed of Mission firefighters and are carefully screened for their physical ability and dexterity. Only those persons who are highly motivated and maintain exceptionally high standards of appearance and conduct and show aptitude for ceremonial duty are likely to be considered.

The primary role for the Mission Fire/Recue Honour Guard is to provide funeral honours for fallen comrades and other civil servants, and to guard ceremonial dignitaries and events. The Honour Guard may also serve as the “guardians of the colours” by displaying and escorting the national, provincial and district flags at ceremonial occasions and official functions.
