This intensive training is designed to develop a fire service or public safety honor guard from basic drills to advanced planning. Using informative presentations and hands-on practical skills, we will cover all aspects of what any honor guard member needs to know. Basic guidance for the standardization of training methods include instruction in proper drill movement and techniques, leadership enhancement, and team confidence building. Basic honor guard skills covered will include basic drills and ceremonies with facing movements, marching, saluting, presentation, postings and retrieving of the colors for multiple or single flags. Casket team operations will include changing and retrieving of casket guards for one or two guards and the final salute, pall bearer operations, casket movement, and the loading and unloading of the casket from a hearse or caisson. Flag team operations will include folding, movement and presentation. Basic and advanced planning for all types of honor guard events will be discussed, including vehicle staging, personnel staging and inter-agency communications.
- Participants will need a Honor Guard or Class A uniform, department flags, tools, and be in full dress all day, each day of class.
