Firefighter Funeral

Firefighter funerals frequently demonstrate the deep camaraderie that exists within the fire service. These funerals are often attended by fellow firefighters from around the United States and the funeral processions typically include fire apparatus from dozens of different fire organizations.

The photographs in this slideshow, taken during the March 28, 2007, funeral of Firefighter William Grant of the Chicago Fire Department, illustrate the experience of attending a firefighter funeral.
