MIDLAND (WJRT) -

(12/02/12) - Firefighters, police officers and people who gave their lives serving their community were honored Sunday night in Midland.

They want to make sure our local heroes are never forgotten, and some know the grief of losing a loved one in the line of duty.

"My son was killed in Clare County in 2003," said Project Blue Light Coordinator Mary Fisher.

"My dad was a firefighter killed in the line of duty, it was two days after my eighth birthday in 1969," said co-coordinator Terri White Groulx.

So Sunday evening at the Memorial Presbyterian Church, they paid respect to officers, firefighters, EMS workers and 911 dispatchers.

And a newly formed Midland Honor Guard carried our country's colors, in tribute of their fallen comrades.

"We'd like the community to come out and show them we care, not that they care for us but that we care for them and we're willing to serve and take care of them," said Sgt. Matthew Berchart with the Midland Police Department.

Bay City is holding their own Project Blue Light ceremony at 7 p.m. Dec. 12 at the First Presbyterian Church on Center Avenue.
