September 10, 2006, was a comfortable sunny day with an occasional white fluffy cloud floating by, perfect weather for the dedication of the New Hampshire Fallen Firefighters Memorial. The service would be the culmination of almost a decade of planning and seven months of construction. Today we would honor those who have lost their lives in service to their communities and honor their families.
The dedication service was preceded by the annual New Hampshire State Fireman’s Association parade that would proceed from Sam’s Club south on Sheep Davis Road (NH Rt-106) to the Fire Academy grounds, home of the NH Fallen Firefighters Memorial. Fire apparatus, color guards, and marching firefighters from all over New Hampshire would march under the garrison flag suspended by two aerial ladders signifying the end of the parade and the beginning of the memorial service.
At 11:00am Paul Fortier Chief Berlin Fire Department (ret) serving as the moderator requested all to rise for the presentation of colors.
