On Saturday, 03 May 2014 members of the Wake & District Public Safety Pipes and Drums once again participated at the North Carolina Fallen Firefighters (NCFFF) march and memorial at Nash Square located in Downtown, Raleigh. This was the 9th Annual iteration and of this march|memorial — and it is the event which sparked our formation…
The NCFFF is organized exclusively for charitable, religious, educational, and scientific purposes, more specifically to lead the effort to remember North Carolina ’s fallen firefighters and their families. The NCFFF compiles, maintains, and makes available information concerning fallen firefighters. The NCFFF acts in the best interest of the firefighters of North Carolina and supplement the efforts of other North Carolina based Fire Service and Government Agencies and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. The NCFFF endeavors to cultivate a fraternal spirit among the firefighters as they endure the loss of their fellow firefighter. For more informaiton on the NCFFF please visit their website @ www.ncfff.org
This year Wake and District was honored to was again march with our brothers (and sisters) from the Asheville Fire Department Pipes and Drums and Charlotte Fire Department Pipes and Drums – alongside a solo piper from the Cary Fire Department. Thank you to all the fire pipes|drums folks who came to our hometown today to honor our fallen comrades from across the Old North State.
