The family will personally contact fire department members who they have requested to attend. If you did not receive an invitation from the family, DO NOT proceed to the funeral service or burial.

Procession Route Information

There will be several different locations along the procession route where friends, uniformed personnel, and fire department companies from PGFD and partnering agencies can pay their respects to Chief Finamore. We expect the procession will begin at approximately 10:15 AM but is subject to change. We are asking those who wish to pay their respects along the procession route to begin gathering at 9:15 AM to allow for ample time for coordination.

There will be two (2) different gathering locations for coordination along the procession route:
Friends and Civilian Members: For friends wishing to pay their respects, we are asking that you please report to the Village at Lee Airpark Shopping Center located at 13 Lee Airpark Drive, Edgewater, MD 21307 (the shopping center is located just off Route 2 near Collinson Lee Lane). A Fire Department representative will meet you there and guide you to where you can stand to pay your respects as the procession drives past.
Uniformed Personnel: For all uniformed personnel wishing to pay their respects, we're asking that you report to Southern High School located at 4400 Solomons Island Road, Harwood, MD 20776. A fire department representative will meet you there and guide you to where we will present a "sea of blue" as the procession drives past.
