Home / Band News / Chicago Fire Department Loses 2


On behalf of the Wake and District Public Safety Pipes and Drums we would like to express our condolences to the family, friends and co-workers of Chicago Fire Fighters Corey Ankum & Edward Stringer who died in the line of duty on 22 December 2010; several others were also badly injured.

When I’m called to duty God wherever flames may rage give me strength to save a life whatever be its age. Help me to embrace a little child – before it is too late – or save an older person from – the horror of that fate. Enable me to be alert, to hear the weakest shout and quickly and efficiently to put the fire out. I want to fill my calling and to give the best in me to guard my neighbor and protect his property. And if according to your will I have to lose my life bless with your protecting hand my children and my wife.

Please keep the Chicago Fire Department in your thoughts and prayers…
