Honoring Local Huntsville Firefighter Wayne T. Bridges

City's last red fire truck takes ex-fighter to rest "...The men, dressed in navy blue uniforms with the Huntsville Fire Rescue insignia, serve as pallbearers at the request of the family of any firefighter, Robinson said. For Bridges, the men presented the American flag draped across his coffin to his family and rang the fire engine's bell in honor of his life, duty and service.

"The reaction from the family is there's no word to describe it," said firefighter and Honor Guard member Don Murray, who worked with Bridges when the two men were stationed on University Drive. "It doesn't matter if you know them or not; you feel like you do." ..." Reference:
