The Menlo Park Fire Protection District Honor Guard was established in 1996, and acts as the Ceremonial Honor Unit for the Fire District. It represents the Fire District and Firefighters Association at fire service funerals and memorial services. The Unit also participates in parades, special events and other ceremonial occasions. The Honor Guard offers its assistance to other Fire Departments upon request. It is our goal, to honor with pride and dignity, those that have served the Fire Service, and to assist our members and their families during their time of need, due to a death or serious injury. The Honor Guard is made up of 14 members from the District, which hold the rank of Firefighter or Captain.
