The photographs that follow include some scans from the book handed out for the ceremony and photographs I took before, during and after the ceremony.
|This is Will Brooks, one of the founders of the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation.|
|This is the kind of picture that wins prizes. I lucked out. The little girl points just like the firefighter in front of her.|
|Left to right are Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation founders, Will Brooks, Georges Potvin, Bill Williams and Gatineau Firefighter, Gary Barnes.|
|Members of the Canadian Armed Forces handle the audio for the ceremony. They have been generously providing this function along with the necessary equipment since the first Fallen Firefighters Ceremony.|
|People do this all the time. They come to the wall, find the name of the firefighter from their family or department who has answered the last alarm and get their picture taken next to the name. I have seen them do this many different times.|
|Someone is doing a rubbing of a name on the wall here. Paper and charcoal was provided for that purpose for anyone who attended the ceremony.|
|Two members of the Canadian Air Force seated among the ceremony's attendees. Firefighting in Canada's military is specifically and Air Force trade. On Canadian Navy ships and Canadian Army bases the firefighters are Air Force personnel.|
