The Honor Guard was implemented in 2005 as a means of portraying the pride and professionalism of the Leawood Fire Department. The mission of the Honor Guard is to represent the Fire Department at local and regional events as directed by the Fire Chief. The Honor Guard is dedicated to honoring past & present Leawood firefighters and their families, as well as fallen firefighters across the nation.
Typically, three to seven members participate in an event. While relatively new, the Honor Guard has served at a variety of events such as formal presentations, opening ceremonies, parades, and unfortunately, funerals for fallen firefighters.
