Hundreds came out to watch the parade celebrating the Port Jefferson Fire Department's 125th Anniversary on Sunday. About 30 departments from across Long Island showed up with their oldest and newest equipment to show off the history of their individual departments.
“It’s absolutely incredible the brotherhood and sisterhood from the other departments,” First Assistant Fire Chief David Williams told Newsday. “We even had departments from Nassau and Connecticut want to celebrate with us.”
Other department members told Newsday that the area fire departments are a tight group and they support each other.
After the parade the department hosted a free block party complete with free food and drinks.
