Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department’s Honor Guard placed first for the second year in a row in the National Honor Guard Competition at the Fire Department Instructors Conference (FDIC) in Indianapolis, Indiana last Friday afternoon. The team, competing against eight other teams from across the nation, participated in details such as Full Dress Inspection, Posting of the Colors, Casket Watch (posting guard at a casket), and Flag-Folding. “I was able to watch most of the event and our team had some stiff competition this year; they really had their work cut out for them,” said MFRD Shift Commander Dale Maynard, who acts as Honor Guard Liaison for the department.
Team members were: Captain/Shift Inspectors Nora Smith, Wade Williams, and Thomas McAdoo, Captains Jeff Irvin, Gary Hutchinson, and Mike Adams, Driver Randy Shaw, and Firefighters Greg Burt and Charles Powell.
