The fire department's annual Memorial Day Mass and a roll call of all the members who died the previous year took place at Holy Family Church, 1080 W. Roosevelt Road, on May 26. After the participants left the church they gathered outside for a flag raising, a 21-gun salute and the playing of Taps. A parade of uniformed members down Roosevelt Road preceded Mass.
