On Saturday, Feb. 25, the Fort Worth Fire Department will honor Engineer David Greene, a 29-year veteran of the department. The firefighter memorial, also called a remembrance ceremony, started as a way to pay respect to the firefighters who gave their life on duty to the residents of Fort Worth.

Why it matters: Feb. 25 was the date of Fort Worth’s first line of duty death in 1902.

  • Each year this ceremony pays respects not just to one individual, but to all who lost their lives.
  • There are two large ceremonies in the country, one in Colorado Springs, Colo., and one in Emmitsburg, Md., that are similar to the ceremony conducted by the Fort Worth Fire Department.
  • This ceremony allows families to have an event that is close and show them that the city their loved one died protecting has not forgotten their sacrifice or the loss the family has experienced.

FWFD Remembrance Ceremony details

  • Saturday, Feb. 25, 2 p.m.
  • Fort Worth Police and Firefighters Memorial, 2201 W. Seventh St.

Greene held the rank of engineer, the designation for the driver of the firetruck. He suffered an occupational cancer and died in the line of duty on Sept. 19, 2022. Saturday’s ceremony will give his family an opportunity to celebrate the life of their loved one after having time to mourn.

The most recent names added to the wall before Greene were Kevin Teague, Stephen Collins and Randal Robinson.
