BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - BAKERSFIELD – The Bakersfield Fire Department (BFD) will pay its respects to the Boston Fire Department for the tragic loss of two of their members during a nine-alarm fire on March 26, 2014.
A message from Fire Chief Douglas R. Green reads as follows:
"We offer to the east coast BFD the sincere and heartfelt sympathy of the men and women of the Bakersfield Fire Department for their loss. It is with the burden of sorrow that we consider the ultimate sacrifice made by any members of the Fire Service, and with the knowledge that by the nature of our vocation, they did not perish in vain. Our collective thoughts are with them at this time."
The BFD will be represented at the funerals and memorial services by three active off-duty members, who will travel to Boston on Monday.
The representation is made possible through the collaborative funding of several BFD groups including the Bakersfield Fire Department Relief Association(BFRA) and Bakersfield Professional Firefighters’ Local 246. Three BFD members from Fire Stations 6, 7, and 13 will attend the funerals of Boston Firefighter Michael Kennedy and Fire Lieutenant Edward Walsh.
