Official Flag of the Gallipolis Fire Department:
Established under the administration of Chief Bob Poling, the department adopted the following flag design for their official department flag. The flag was designed by then Fire Captain Keith Elliott.
Since its inception, the official department flag unfortunately bears black streamers; one for each of our firefighters who have given their full measure of dedication to the department and have died in the line of duty. Each black streamer indicates the fallen firefighters name, rank, and date of death.
Currently there are three black streamers attached to the official department flag. These memorial streamers are for: Resident Firefighter Lawrence Berry, DOD 07/25/1972; Firefighter Richard A. Long, FD 12, DOD 04/03/2003; and Firefighter Gregory A. Northup (nephew to Chief James A. Northup), FD 27, DOD 09/03/2008.
