CINCINNATI -- Firefighter Kirsten Worth stood at attention alongside her colleagues to honor her brothers and sisters who have died in the line of duty.
Thursday’s annual Greater Cincinnati Firefighter’s Memorial Service honored two firefighters killed in the past 13 years. No Greater Cincinnati firefighters have died this year.
Whenever a Cincinnati firefighter dies or gets injured, the situation is thoroughly studied and training is adjusted to try to ensure it doesn't happen again. Those new to the department are grateful to the sacrifices of those who have come before them.
“It's such an honor to be a part of this, to recognize those firefighters that literally put their lives ahead of everybody else,” Worth said.
