Firefighters offer a show of support

The funeral procession of Princeton firefighter/EMT Kurt Garvin heads to Elm Lawn Cemetery Thursday morning. A Princeton firetruck led the way, and two aerial firetrucks extended their ladders, forming an arch and suspending the U.S. flag. The Princeton Fire Department also draped its front sign with a cloth and displayed Garvin’s firefighting equipment to show their respect for their fallen colleague. Garvin, 28, died in a motorcycle accident a week ago.
