The firemen, all in their gear, had two fire trucks one on each side of Andrus road, the ladders high with the buckets holding them up, and in the center of the road, high above the American flag was flying. All the firemen lined up in order alongside the hearse and saluted as the siren blew once, The Last Alarm in his honor.
