      Rev. Dr. Rick asks:

      I am a fire chaplain, along with being a minister in upstate New York. We, as chaplains, are looking to purchase a ceremonial bell with attached striker for memorial services. We borrow from a random assortment of available bells, but we always seem to find some unfortunate soul who can’t strike a bell with the same consistency. If you could send me in the right direction for a purchase, I would be extremely grateful. Thank you for your help and God bless you all, Rev. Dr. Rick Waite

      Can you help?

      The Bevin Manufacturing Company of East Hampton, CT has produced and sold table top bells (~6 inches at the base) with various logos on the finial to be struck by a mallet for use by Kiwanis, Rotary, Lions, etc. If you are using the bell in your capacity as a Fireman’s Chaplain, then it would be most appropriate to use a chrome plated fire engine bell (contact a manufacturer of fire engines) or get one from a retired fire engine from a local fire department (if they are willing to part with one).

      Under what conditions do you ring such a bell? , i.e. inside a building? outside a building? cemetery? parage ground?

      I sell bells from 5″ diameter and up, new & pre-owned.

      Several years ago, I suppllied the bell for the fireman’s memorial at the State of Georgia Public Safety Training Center in Forsythe, Georgia. The bell was stationary mounted, hanging from Georgia marble. The bell was about 200 pounds. The clapper was hand pulled with a rope lanyard. The bell had a high polished finish.
