Honor Guard

About the Honor Guard

The Aspen Fire Honor Guard was established in 2013 with the goal 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, social functions, fire victims’ funerals, assist families during a time of need and stand guard at funeral homes.
