Tacoma Fire Department Honor Guard
honor guard all

The Tacoma Fire Department (TFD) Honor Guard was formed in late 1999 with five members. Officially up and running in early 2000, the TFD Honor Guard had participated in over 20 events by the end of the first year.

The mission of the Honor Guard is to honor, remember and celebrate active, retired and fallen Tacoma Fire Department members. In addition, the TFD Honor Guard is proud to offer services to Firefighters from across the state and nation. The unit has participated in events ranging from memorial services to parades, the Miss Washington Pageant, the Olympic Torch Relay, Mariners games at Safeco Field and honoring our fallen in Colorado at the IAFF Fallen Firefighter Memorial.

The Honor Guard has a high-profile role in the public relations efforts of the Tacoma Fire Department. The diversity we proudly celebrate in our department is reflected in the ranks of the Honor Guard. 

Honor Guard members are all Firefighters who volunteer their time and financial support. Those who request our services for funerals, memorials, graduations, etc., donate little to no monetary support.  The money you contribute goes directly toward uniforms, equipment, training, the 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony and funds travel expenses for members to participate in the Annual IAFF Firefighter Memorial Ceremony in Colorado Springs, CO. 

Financial donations not only assist us in acquiring additional needed items, but also help defray the out-of-pocket expenditures of our members. Donations may be sent to Firefighters Local #31, 1109 South 50th, Tacoma, WA, 98408. Most of our funds are raised by Local #31 members through payroll deduction.

To request Honor Guard Services or support email HonorGuard@iafflocal31.com. To request Honor Guard memorial services include the name of the member, primary contact information and service details.
