A 40-Year Memorial Service was held at Firefighter Park last week to honor the eleven Kingman Fire Department firefighters who were killed July 5, 1973 during the Doxol Propane railroad tanker disaster in Kingman. The KFD Honor Guard and Pipes and Drums opened the ceremonies and a group of KFD, Bureau of Land Management and Northern Arizona Consolidated Fire District members released 19 balloons in honor of the 19 firefighters who lost their lives June 30, 2013 near Yarnell. City and fire officials spoke to the crowd and then the Fire Bell was rung 11 times to honor the fallen Kingman firefighters. Former Cottonwood Fire Chief Mike Casson, whose father Bill died in the disaster, and his wife Debbie, attended the ceremony. Debbie said, "We never miss when these memorials are held. The next generation of kids gets to see the level of respect for the grandparents they never knew. It's important for them to see the camaraderie and respect. It's a delight to connect with families and celebrate those who carried on in the worst of circumstances." JC AMBERLYN/Miner
