The memorial service starts at 1:00 p.m. The names of two fallen firefighters will be added: Chad Eric Green, 34, died on November 4, 2009, after responding to a motor vehicle crash. He was the Deputy Chief of Union Cross Fire Department in Forsyth County. Richard Adam Miller, 24, died on December 29, 2009, while participating in physical fitness training at Beltmont Fire Department Headquarters in Gaston County.

Over 225 members of the state's fire service have died in the line of duty since the first recorded death of Washington volunteer firefighter Edward Peed in 1902.
