Fire Department Flags Lowered
October 18, 2017
Today the Peace River and County of Northern Lights Fire Departments was saddened to learn of the line of duty death of firefighter James Hargrave from the Walsh Fire Station in Cypress County.
James died protecting the community of Hilda while fighting a rapidly spreading grass fire.
When a line of duty death occurs to a fellow firefighter in Alberta we commemorate their sacrifice with the lowering of flags, at Peace River and County of Northern Lights fire halls, until the memorial service is held.
