Honoring Firefighters in New Jersey

First and foremost, it is important to ensure that the wishes of the deceased and their family are met when planning a burial service. In any funeral or remembrance, this must be the priority before anything else. Next, we cater to all traditions of a specific fire department or rituals that honor a firefighter. Many families choose to combine their rituals and wishes with those of the fallen’s fire department to develop a ceremony that perfectly honors the deceased. We understand the massive responsibility of honoring firefighters and work relentlessly to ensure that an honorable service is conducted from start to finish.

Firefighter Burial Traditions

Traditions and rituals of a firefighter’s funeral are designed to honor a firefighter for the ultimate sacrifice they made while serving their community. Arrangements may include full military-style honors for those who died in the line of duty, including an honor guard. An honor guard may be assigned by the fallen’s fire department, which will involve them standing guard at the casket during the wake or viewing. The fire department may also have its own traditions, such as assigning pallbearers or ushers or doing a last alarm service at the fire department.

Ultimately, each fire department will have unique rituals for the service, all of which Memorial Properties will graciously accommodate. Families of firefighters will typically work with a representative of the fire department to determine which traditions and rituals, if any, they would like incorporated into the service. Memorial Properties has extensive experience honoring fallen firefighters in New Jersey and will gladly consult families on the options available to them. We also provide firefighters and their families with pre-planning benefits. When you pre-plan with Memorial Properties, you will receive a certificate of credit up to $1495 to put towards an above-ground space, in-ground interment space, or community bible niche at one of our locations in NJ.
