The Gloucester Fire Department will hold a ceremony to honor the deceased firefighters who have served the Gloucester community.
A drum-led procession will march up Washington Street, from the Department of Public Works to the Firefighters Memorial Site at Cherry Hill Cemetery. Once there, the department will honor its fallen firefighters and will place wreaths and flags on their graves.
“It’s an honor to pay our respects to those who have come before us and sacrificed on behalf of the City of Gloucester,” Chief Smith said. “I hope residents will take the time to join us for this traditional tribute to the firefighters who served our community and dedicated their lives to keeping it safe.”
