Chico, Calif.- The city of Chico will honor it's fallen Fire Captain Joe Duran on Sept. 21. 

Duran lost his life to cancer on Sept. 12 after nearly 30 years with the department, serving as leader of the department's Rescue Team.

He retired due to his illness in August of 2017.

Services for Captain Duran begin on Sept. 21 at 11:30 a.m. at the Bidwell Presbyterian Church, located at 208 Est 1st Street in downtown Chico.

A procession of emergency vehicles will carry Captain Duran from the Church to the Chico Cemetary - including up to 50 fire trucks and engines from across the state, as other department members who knew and loved Duran will be present to honor his memory.

The procession will have a few impacts on traffic, as will the accommodation of parking for those visiting departments.

1st Street will be closed between Salem Street and Broadway from 9:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. to allow for parking of fire equipment before the procession.

Their route goes from the church, South down Broadway, East on 5th Street, North on Main Street, up the Esplanade and East over to Mangrove Avenue to the Chico Cemetary.

Emergency vehicles will park along Mangrove along the cemetery property.
