Names to be added to firefighters’ memorial

Plaques bearing the names of Clark County Capt. Paul Young and North Las Vegas Firefighter Dean Tajima will be added to those of other Nevada firefighters who have lost their lives in the line of duty on the Nevada Firefighters’ Memorial on Saturday.

The 10 a.m. formal ceremony, which is open to the public, will be at the Nevada Firefighters’ Memorial in Mills Park. The ceremony will conclude the weeklong observance of National Fire Prevention Week in Nevada. Members of the Carson City Fire Department Honor Guard, among others, will lead a combined fire service/honor guard during the ceremony and will conduct the memorial bell ceremony.
