KILGORE, TX (KLTV) - The Kilgore rescue unit is making a special dedication to honor fallen Kilgore fire fighter Kyle Perkins.
Kilgore Rescue Unit Chief Edgar Rachal said they will remodeling a new training room at their facility where Kyle served as an active unit member.
Perkins died two weeks ago after falling to his death during a training accident. Right now, the room is being used for storage but Chief Rachal said it was Perkins idea to turn the room in to a training facility before he died.
"We're going to have a plaque made when the room is complete to put on the wall and we're going to name it after Kyle because it was pretty much Kyle's idea," explained Rachal. "So, I thought well why not just do it right and it would be something we'd all be proud of."
