WESTPORT, Conn. – The Westport Fire Department will host the 33rd annual Bridgeport Area Retired Firefighters Memorial Service on Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Church of the Assumption in Westport.
The event is preceded by a short parade starting at 6:45 p.m. from the Saugatuck School, which is led by the Connecticut Firefighters Pipes and Drums, followed by the area fire departments and their retirees.
The event recognizes those members who have given the ultimate sacrifice, having died in the line of duty and remembers those who have died in the past year.
The Westport Police Department will close the road for the procession, which will cause minor delays in the area. The event will last approximately 90 minutes and members will then depart from the church and be dismissed after a short photo session.
The Church of the Assumption is located at 98 Riverside Ave., Westport.
