ATLANTA, Ga. - A funeral will be held Friday morning for 24-year-old Jermaine Hall, a firefighter with Atlanta Fire Rescue who died of a brain aneurysm last week.
The service is scheduled at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia. Hall joined the department two years ago as a rookie and worked at Station 29, officials said.
Flags flew at half-staff at fire stations around the city last week as the Atlanta Fire Rescue Department mourned the loss of two firemen — Hall a newlywed, the other a father of triplets — who died within 24 hours of each other.
The funeral for 36-year-old Sgt. Frank Guinn was held Thursday afternoon at the Peachtree Road Presbyterian Church. Guinn was training for a triathlon in New Orleans when he was hit by a car while riding his bicycle, officials said. He worked at Station 21 as part of a special operations team that handles building collapses, high angle rescues and trench collapses, officials said.
