Firefighters from across the state convened in Frankfort on Wednesday, September 28 at 11amET to honor comrades who have died in the line of duty. The tribute began with the sixth annual Red Helmets ride at 9amET, at the Frankfort Fire and EMS Station #3, followed by a memorial service at Juniper Hills Park, 800 Louisville Road, Frankfort, entrance, at the Fallen Firefighters Memorial.
"We appreciate the bravery of each of these men and women. They sacrificed their lives to protect others - nothing is more courageous," said Ronnie Day, executive director of the Kentucky Fire Commission.
Kentucky's Fallen Firefighter Memorial was erected October 11, 1999 and has more than 200 names of firefighters who have died in the line of duty. This year, seven additional names were added to the memorial, Including our Charles Sparks. Several members of the Columbia-Adair County Fire Department attended the ceremony and I have attached photos of the memorial. -DONALD HARE
