The honor guard was formed in December of 2004 with the teamwork of the Hooksett Fire - Rescue Department and the members of the Hooksett Permanent Firefighters Association IAFF Local 3264. The team is made up of nine members volunteering their time to honor our profession, promote traditional fire service values, to honor our country and communities, and those who serve.
The mission of the honor guard is to honor our fire service family, past and present, in triumph and tragedy, in remembrance and in celebration, with a sense of DUTY, HONOR & TRADITION.
The honor guard has represented Hooksett at fire service and law enforcement memorials in all six New England states, New York, New Jersey and Montreal QC, Canada.
Locally we're proud to present our nations colors at opening ceremonies
for HYAA Baseball and Pop Warner Football. We carry our colors in Honor of the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country during the annual Memorial Day Parade.
