4-year-old James Raugh’s name was honorarily added to the active duty roster and he was assigned to Jenkins Volunteer Fire Department Ladder Truck 22. James, his two siblings and their father were killed in a fire at their home in South Carolina on Monday.

James was the oldest of the children and wanted to be a firefighter like his uncle. To help posthumously make that dream come true, fire departments were asked to put James’ name on their duty rosters. The Jenkins Fire Department obliged, and James was made an honorary member of the department, and was assigned to one of the departments trucks this past Wednesday.

James was honorarily assigned to Jenkins Volunteer Fire Department Ladder Truck number 22. And with that, and other honorary assignments by other fire departments, he joined the firefighting brotherhood, and achieved his dream.

Honorary firefighter James Raugh, his siblings and their dad were laid to rest Friday in South Carolina.
