A Day to Honor Our Volunteer Fire Service
Saturday, July 10 (Rain Date July 11)
On the WHB Great Lawn, 10am – 4pm
Apparatus from the 1920s, 30s, 40s will be on display, as well as a Fire Prevention Trailer and Fire Education Program.
Firefighting in the area dates back to the 1800s, but organized firefighting in Westhampton Beach originated in 1904 with the formation of the Quogue and Westhampton Beach Fire Department. For 117 years, the men and women of the Westhampton Beach Fire Department or its predecessor, have served their neighbors by training and performing the duties and responsibilities of dedicated, courageous firefighters … the true spirit of volunteerism.
Plus! Visit the Westhampton Beach Historical Society’s Tuthill House Museum to see the exhibition “The History of the Fire Service On the 25th Anniversary of the Sunrise Wildfire.” This exhibit will be open the day of the Antique Fire Apparatus Exhibition from 10 AM to 4 PM. Free admission!
We are grateful to Suffolk County Legislator Bridget Fleming and the Suffolk County Department of Parks, Recreation and Conservation for its funding in support of this event.
