Firehouses Celebrate 100th Anniversary (Aired on August 3 and 4, 2019)

For 100 years, the villages of Red Hook and Tivoli, New York, have been served by their respective volunteer fire departments, so they are jointly celebrating the anniversary in 2019. RadioRotary gets the whole story of the history and of the celebration from guests Stephen Fell, Chief of the Red Hook Fire Company, and Marc Hildenbrand, Chief of the Tivoli Fire Department. In the 19th century, fire companies were mostly privately owned, often specializing in a particular aspect of fire fighting, such as a hook-and-ladder company or a hose company. Near the beginning of the 20th century, the villages moved to consolidate everything into two volunteer fire companies—both villages are part of the Town of Red Hook. 

In this program, you will learn about the training and equipment a fire fighter needs; the other services of a fire company, including EMT-staffed ambulances; duties of the fire police; and much more. You will also learn about the recent disaster when the Tivoli Fire Station burned and how the community is coming together to rebuild and re-equip it.
