he Houston Fire Department, like most other departments, has always been rich with tradition. We have always rallied around and paid respect to our Line of Duty Deaths (LODD). These members of our department that have completed their service to the citizens and gone on to enjoy hobbies, travel or take on another career. Some have had disabling permanent injuries that have forced them to leave HFD

before they were ready. To the best of our knowledge, the HFD Honor Guard evolved from the Houston Fire Department American Veterans Post #74. The HFD Am-Vet Post was formed in October 1985 by Roger Anderson. Mayor Kathy Whitmire signed a proclamation later that year, formally recognizing the HFD Am-Vet Post as the official Honor Guard Unit for the Houston Fire Department. The first function of the honor guard was to present colors at the Veterans National Cemetery in Houston on Veterans Day 1985. The unit continued to perform honor guard duties until 1992 when Fire Chief Eddie Corral reorganized the unit into the Houston Fire Department Honor Guard. The HFD Honor Guard will perform at Line of Duty Deaths, Active Firefighter and Retiree funerals. In addition, the guard will perform at numerous functions such as Cadet Graduations, Fire Station Grand Openings & Dedications, Fire Fest, Parades, Trail Blazers, Promotions Ceremonies and the Mayoral Inauguration.
