Lakewood, Wash. – Lakewood Fire District 2 helped to raise four flagpoles this morning at the Forza Coffee Shop on Steele Street in memory of the four fallen Lakewood Police Officers.
Lakewood firefighters helped to raise the poles by using a rope system on Ladder 20 to hoist them into place. Four flagpoles now stand outside the Forza Coffee Shop; one for each officer: Sgt. Mark Renniger, Officer Tina Griswold, Officer Ronnie Owens and Officer Greg Richards.
A dedication of the memorial will be held at Forza later this month, according to Forza CEO Brad Carpenter. Lakewood Fire District 2 is honored to have participated in this event.
