Thousands honor the life of Dallas Fire

Ann Arbor Fire Department sending 2 honor guard members to Texas memorial service

Workers pause for a memorial service Wednesday at the site of the fire and explosion in West, Texas, April 17.

Hundreds of firefighters from across the nation, including two from Ann Arbor, are expected to attend a memorial service Thursday at Baylor University in Texas for those who perished in the devastating plant explosion April 17.

Chris Nielsen and Chris Taylor head up the Ann Arbor Fire Department's honor guard, a group of 12 firefighters who participate in memorial services. The guard usually goes only to local events, but due to the severity of the Texas explosion — 10 firefighters killed — the two asked Fire Chief Chuck Hubbard if they could attend.

Both Hubbard and Nielsen brought up the show of support the Ann Arbor Fire Department received several years ago when one of their own, Amy Schnearle-Pennywitt, died after being struck by a pickup on an icy road while responding to a call for an accident.
