On Sunday, October 9, 2016, Lockwood Fire Protection District was pleased to participate in the 6th annual “Bells Across America” event sponsored by the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
Lockwood Fire was notified by Debbie Abrams a district resident, of the event she participates in at her home each year. She has a bell mounted, a flagpole and an alarm box on a special section of her property to honor her brother, Los Angeles Firefighter/Paramedic Glenn L. Allen, who perished in a fire on February 18, 2011 while on duty.
“Bells Across America” is part of the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend in Emmitsburg, Maryland. Debbie and her husband live-streamed the event and rang the bell along with those in Maryland. In attendance were neighbors, Lockwood Firefighters, Board Directors, Auxiliary members and local county Board Supervisor Lynn Morgan. It was a somber experience as the bell rang and echoed throughout the trees and mountains in a single ring. Photos of the event can be seen at http://www.lockwoodfire.org/
