For the first time in three years, the Fishers Island Fire District commissioners hosted the Installation Dinner for the Fire Department members, in person at the Firehouse.
The ‘barn’ was spotless and the perfect venue for the celebration. Department members and their guests witnessed the swearing in of the 2023 officers and the presentation of the anniversary pins by the commissioners. Chief Jeff Edwards presented the 2022 Member of the Year Award to Assistant Division Fire Chief Matt Edwards for his years of dedicated service as a volunteer firefighter and department treasurer.
Celebrating anniversaries and receiving their decade pins with the Fishers Island Fire Department this year are:
Fire Dept. Chaplin George Horning
Sea Stretcher Captain Steve Malinowski
Chief Jeff Edwards
EMT & Exec. Board member Tracy Brock
Fire Fighter & Commissioner Don Beck
