PALMYRA FIRE DEPARTMENT, HOOK AND LADDER #1, PALMYRA, NY
The first picture shows where the Fire Department use to be. The building was originally built as an opera house, then became the Palmyra Fire House for many years. When they moved the Fire Department to the new building, it became Village Hall. The next three pictures are of the Fire House.
On April 26th, they had Open House trying to get new men and women to join our volunteer fire department. I was given free run with my camera. I have shown the fire trucks (not all were there as some were on a fire call). Some of the firemen and firewomen. Also showed the inside of the fire hall, some of the equipment they wear and how they pull lit on. The last is a picture that someone painted for the Fire Department. It is a picture of a fireman with his arms around people.
This is the first set of pictures, I will have more on tomorrow, May 3rd.
