The 21st Annual Genesee County
Fallen Firefighters Memorial Ceremony was held on September 9, 2017.
Below are photos taken of the event.
When I am called to duty God,
whenever flames may rage; Give me strength to save some life, whatever
be its age.
Help me 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 and 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 every neighbor and protect his property.
And if, according to your fate, I am to lose my life; Please bless with your protecting hand, my children and my wife.
