The Silver City Fire Department Honor Guard is a seven member team that train together to provide honor guard services. Teamwork and uniformity is of major importance to the success of services provided by the Honor Guard. The Silver City Fire Departments Honor Guard is proudly led by Lieutenant Paul Ortiz.
Active members include Captain Aaron Seavers, Lieutenants Jesse Glick, Paul Ortiz, Adam White, Daniel Hernandez, Driver/Operator Robert McGrath and Firefighter Zachary Ore.
Established in 2012, our goal is to represent all members of the fire department in the highest degree of professionalism, dedication, loyalty, honor, and dignity. We strive to honor firefighters in life, as well as death, and to exhibit the best possible image to the entire community.
In addition to funerals and memorial services, the honor guard may be called upon to post colors, march in parades, attend social functions and badge pinning ceremonies, and any other function authorized or requested by the Fire Chief.
