In 2001, the late Capt. Orren Doub had the vision to start an Honor Guard for our organization. At that time, there were very few Honor Guards that were comprised of only EMS providers, most of the teams were based in the fire service. We are active in numerous events. We have been a part of Honor Guard exhibitions and we participated in the annual National EMS Memorial Service while it was still held in Roanoke, Va. We have posted colors for the opening ceremonies of the NC State Paramedic Competition banquet since our inception, participated in parades, graduations, and multiple patriotic services, and have had the solemn honor of performing funerals for our own organization and others. Our agency is now a combined department of EMS and Fire divisions and we have welcomed new members from the fire division. We pride ourselves with having our own singer for the National Anthem and three members that play the bugle. If you have questions about the Honor Guard, contact Capt. Shane C. Moore.
