The 15th annual Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service was held at the Yarmouth Fire Department yesterday morning.

Many firefighters from across the Tri-Counties were in attendance, as they honoured those who paid the ultimate price in the line of duty.

Wreaths were laid, there were prayers and the playing of the Last Post during the ceremony.

Organizer Stewart Deveau says it began as a tribute to those who lost their lives on September 11th, 2001 during terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C.

He says it has since grown to honour all firefighters lost.
