PHOTOS: 2017 Bucks County Fallen Firefighters Memorial Ceremony

A siren pierced the quiet morning air as firefighters and emergency medical service providers from throughout Bucks County paused to remember the county’s fallen firefighters and EMS Responders on Sunday. Gathered around the Bucks County Fallen Firefighters Memorial in the courtyard of the county administrative building, they bowed their heads in silent remembrance of friends, colleagues, family members and volunteers who answered the call and never came home. Bucks County Commissioner Diane Ellis-Marseglia, speaking on behalf of her colleagues on the board, Charles Martin and Rob Loughery who were unable to attend, thanked the firefighters and EMS providers for their service to the county and for answering the call.
