Prior to the service over 85 ambulances, police vehicles and firefighting units escorted their bodies from the Eastgate Funeral home to the Bismarck Event Center.
It was a silent procession as first responding units flashed their lights in unity traveling the two and a half miles across town.
Emergency Medical professionals from across the state took part in the procession.
Vehicles from West Fargo, Bowman, Killdeer and even Fergus Falls Minnesota were there.
Records Technician for Bismarck Police Department, Deanne Anderson, says first responders are family, and there was no hesitation when asked to take part in the procession.
City of Bismarck Police Department DeAnne Anderson said “Everyone in that field has such dedication that it is really hard to go through it but knowing that they are going to be our angels — I happen to know the pilot personally and we were just shocked when we heard about it so its just a sad day overall.
