n 10/4/2015, the members of the Aetna Hose, Hook and Ladder Company gathered in remembrance of the 87 firefighters (84 from 2014 and 3 added to 2013) who gave their lives in 2014.  The ceremony coincided with the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial service in Emmitsburg, MD.  Aetna members rang the station bell once for each of the 87 firefighters who lost their lives, a tradition that dates back to 1981.
