NH firefighters attending service for Ariz. brothers
Bob Welch, a firefighter assigned to the Amory Street station, is attending in his capacity as a drum major with the New Hampshire Professional Firefighters Pipes and Drums, said Manchester Fire Chief James Burkush.
Also expected to be on hand today is Durham firefighter Scott McGrath, a former member of the Arizona Granite Mountain Hotshots.
Today’s ceremony will be on the minds of firefighters across the Granite State, said David Lang, president of the 2,000-member NHPFF.“Locally, every firefighter’s thoughts and hearts and minds will be with the families and loved ones of those who paid the ultimate sacrafice,” Lange said.
