Captain Frank Beauvais will emcee the event and Captain Stephen Savoca will be the bell ringer. The invocation and closing prayer will be given by Nampa Police Department Chaplain Andy Satta.
Taps will be played during the raising of the flag by Larre’ Robertson, a member of Bugles Across America. This year the flag will be presented by Nampa Fire and Police Honor Guards, followed by Amazing Grace on the bagpipes. The ceremony includes the Ringing of the Last Alarm, a tradition in fire departments when there’s a line of duty death.
Nampa Fire Chief Kirk Carpenter said, “We invite the community to come and help us honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country and show our thanks to those who continue to fight protecting our freedoms and way of life. We vowed to “Never Forget.” Please join us with your families, friends and co-workers as we continue our Patriots Day tradition of showing respect, honor and remembrance.”
The remembrance event will occur at Fire Station No. 1, located at the corner of 1st Street South and 10th Avenue South. The ceremony is expected to last about 15 minutes. Attendees are encouraged to arrive a few minutes early as the ceremony will begin promptly at 8 a.m.
