KFD Honour Guard

First formed in 1997, the Honour Guard has evolved over the years into a precision drill team that proudly represents the Department, IAFF and City of Kelowna at occasions throughout the year such as:

Line of Duty Deaths
Remembrance Day observance guarding the Kelowna Fire Department Cenotaph
9/11 Memorial Ceremony
Awards ceremonies
Recruit firefighter graduation parades
Inaugural meetings of City Council
Opening ceremonies of IAFF conventions, BC Fire Training Officers convention
Numerous other public and fundraising events

Our mission is to become highly proficient in all aspects of drill and ceremony, adhering to the Canadian Forces standards whenever possible. This includes all facets of the unfortunate reality of a funeral.


Lest we forget…

We do not carry weapons, rather hand tools related to our profession:

Axe
Pike Poles
Lath and Plaster Hook

To honour those who have carried, are carrying and will carry these vitally important implements, all our tools have seen active service, some dating back to our beginnings in the early 1900’s.

“Nemo Relinquetur”

No One will be left
