ABOUT THE BAND
Brevard Police and Fire Pipes and Drums was founded on April 13, 2009. The Band maintains a traditional military-style uniform, wearing the Modern Murray of Atholl tartan kilt.
The Band's musical selections include the playing of traditional and contemporary bagpipe music from Ireland, Scotland and beyond. The Band also plays several spirited pub-style tunes which is always a hit with the crowd.
Our Band members are active and retired sworn Deputy Sheriffs, Police Officers, and firefighters from various agencies in Brevard County and throughout the United States, as well as civilians of many diverse occupations.
Our mission is to pay tribute and honor to Law Enforcement Officers and Firefighters throughout the State of Florida, who are killed in the line of duty. It is or hope that we are never needed by any department, but in that unfortunate event, you can be assured we will be there to remember those who served their community so honorably. Our service is provided free of charge for a funeral or memorial, at the request of the family or department of the deceased.
