Crockett FD wants to create a fire honor guard


One East Texas fire department is looking to take a step up.

Last year, the Crockett Fire Department was able to get a Class A Classification Now, it is looking to improve its status and get an honor guard.

There is no set time frame and with a tight budget all of this is being down through public donations.

Chief John Angerstein said that for Crockett to get this status would bring more respect to the small town department.

"It will instill a little more pride and honor into our department to where our guys will be able to represent the City of Crockett and our fire department, especially if it was a case of our own that was fallen or a neighboring department that was really close to home," Angerstein said.

There is no time frame set at this time on when the honor guard status will be gained.
