A procession is planned this week to honor Deputy Chief Brian Hricik, who died late last month after a battle with pancreatic cancer.
Hricik, who had been with the Alexandria Fire Department (AFD) since 1997, will be remembered at 1 p.m. at the Vienna Presbyterian Church (124 Park Street NE).
Before the ceremony, a procession will leave from Fire Station 204 (900 Second Street).
“A procession will depart Station 204 at 11 a.m. for Vienna Presbyterian Church, where Deputy Chief Brian Hricik will be remembered during a final public service,” a release from the City of Alexandria said. “Residents and businesses along the 20-mile route are encouraged to show their appreciation and support for Deputy Chief Hricik, as well as the first responders participating in his procession.”
The release noted that regional mutual aid agreements would ensure that AFD personnel can attend the memorial service without a staffing shortage.
“This is a time of great sadness for the Alexandria Fire Department and for the City of Alexandria,” said Alexandria Fire/EMS Chief Corey Smedley in the release. “We have not only lost an outstanding employee and Medical Services Deputy Chief, but a dedicated and well-respected colleague and friend. Over the past 25 years, Brian proved himself as an outstanding leader and advocate for a high-performing EMS system. He will be sorely missed by the Department, City, and community; we send our deepest regrets to his family and friends on their loss.”
