When I am called to duty, God
Wherever flames may rage
give me strength to save a life
whatever be its age.
Let me embrace a little child
before it is too late
or save an older person from
the horror of that fate.
Enable me to be alert
and hear the weakest shout,
and quickly and efficiently
to put the fire out.
I want to fill my calling
to give the best in me,
to guard my friend and neighbor
and protect their property.
And, if, according to your will,
while on duty I must answer death’s call;
Bless with your protecting hand
my family, one and all.

The Sacramento Area Firefighters 522 Honor Guard was started in the early to mid ‘90s.  It was mostly comprised of Sacramento City and Metro Firefighters and was lead by the late Robert Werner.  In 2007 the members of the Honor Guard along with Local 522 expanded the Honor Guard.  This was accomplished by recruiting members from the six Fire Departments represented by the 522. Today we have 14 members who volunteer their time and are involved in over 30 events a year.  Some of these events include memorial services, funerals, promotional ceremonies, parades and fire academy graduations.  At the present day, the Honor Guard includes members from:  Airport Fire, Cosumnes Fire, Folsom Fire, Metro Fire, Sacramento City Fire and West Sacramento Fire.
