City offers red ribbons to honor firefighters

The Salisbury Fire Department is offering red ribbons to honor fallen firefighters Justin Monroe and Victor Isler.
Salisbury Fire Department Chaplain Dan Peters, working with the N.C. Fallen Firefighters Foundation first offered red ribbons Saturday at Salisbury Fire Station No. 1, 514 E. Innes St.
“These ribbons, received through an anonymous donation to the N.C. Fallen Firefighters Foundation, will serve as a reminder to fellow firefighters, citizens and the Salisbury-Rowan community that our two fallen brothers will not be forgotten,” Peters said.
Complimentary ribbons will be available to citizens at fire stations and participating local businesses. Citizens are asked to tie these ribbons onto their car antennas or to display them in a prominent location to honor Isler and Monroe.
Currently, the ribbons are available at Fire Station No. 1, 514 E. Innes St.; Fire Station No. 2, 2312 S. Main St.; Fire Station No. 3, 1604 W. Innes St.; Fire Station No. 4, 2325 Statesville Blvd.; L.A. Murph’s, 1532 W. Innes St.; and Summersett Funeral Home, 1315 W. Innes St.
