Local Tribute To Fallen Firefighters Across The Nation

This is the start of National Fire Prevention week and like every year fire stations across the country begin with a tribute to the ones who lost their lives in the line of duty.

In Greenville, crews prepared for Sunday night's silent march from Wilkerson Funeral Home down Fifth Street to the main fire station.

They will line up at 6:30 Sunday Evening.

Eddie Meeks, with the Greenville Fire And Rescue Departments, says their sacrifice is why remembering these fallen heroes is some important.
