WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wisc (WSAU) The final alarm ceremony is this weekend in Wisconsin Rapids.

It's a time when firefighters who died in the line-of-duty are honored at the state firefighter’s memorial.

Three more names are being added this year. Jamison Kampmeyer from the Colby Fire Department, John Colbert from the Birchwood Fire Department, and Robert Wojczulis from Milwaukee. A procession will begin at 7pm. A bell will ring after each firefighters name is called out, and there will be playing of bagpipes.

The state firefighter’s memorial is at Memorial Park in Wisconsin Rapids, off South 2nd Avenue.
