Sullivan Fire, Police and EMS led a fire prevention parade around the town square, with the entire fleet taking part with full lights and sirens.

That led this group to the new first responders monument, which was dedicated with a six gun salute.

Those involved say it's a way all of us can honor those who have paid the ultimate price in the service of the community.

"Everyday we go out and we aren't sure if this will be our last call, and there are several in the county that have done that and we hope we don't lose anymore But it's quite an honor and I hope they find some closure here if they visit this monument," said John Quilliam, president of the Sullivan County Fire Chief's Association.

The monument cost nearly $3,000, and all of the money was donated by the community through fundraisers.

The process took two years to complete.
