Honor GuardThe Turlock Fire Department Honor Guard was formed in 2013 with 6 members under the direction of Fire Chief Tim Lohman (retired). Today, we have a total of 9 members that represent the Turlock Fire Department to the highest standards. Our goal is to represent all members of the Fire Department in the highest degree of professionalism, dedication, loyalty, honor and dignity. Countless hours of training and sacrifice are required from each Honor Guard member.
