The City of New Bern Fire-Rescue Honor/Color Guard began like most others in the fire service. There was a need to attend to our own with the loyalty, respect, and honor of the fire service. Our first event was in October, 1999 and they have been busy ever since, providing a wide variety of services to assist our community and brotherhood. Currently, a team of nine men volunteer for this prestigious position; each capable of performing in any position within the team.
Funeral Services, Funeral Casket Guard, Bell Services, Playing of Taps, Opening Ceremonies, Civic Events, and Parades.
Bugle, Snare Drum, Flags, Pike Poles, M-1 Rifles (will not be loaned out), Axes, and Bell.
