Fallen Campbellsville Firefighter Honored

Kentucky firefighters who died in the line of duty will be honored at a memorial service this week in Frankfort.

The annual Fallen Firefighters Memorial service is set for 11 a.m. Wednesday at Juniper Hills Park.

Kentucky's Fallen Firefighter Memorial includes more than 200 names of firefighters who died in the line of duty. Two more names of fallen firefighters will be added to the wall this year. They include Anthony Grider of the Campbellsville Fire Department who came too close to power lines during an ALS Ice Bucket Challenge last summer on Campbellsville University's campus and Malcolm Jenkins of the Fern Creek Fire Department.

The service will include a wreath-laying to honor fallen firefighters.

The annual Red Helmets Courage Ride, a motorcycle tribute to firefighters who made the ultimate sacrifice, will begin at Frankfort Fire and EMS Station Number 3 prior to the service.
