Welcome
Welcome to the Official Web Site of the East Moriches Fire Department located on the East End of Long Island in New York. We are proud to be celebrating 121 years of service and dedication to the community (1888 - 2009) as a Volunteer Fire Service. We pride ourselves on the experience, strength, efforts, determination and commitment of all the Members of the East Moriches Fire Department.
History of the East Moriches Fire Department
At a meeting of 24 men of East Moriches on October 6, 1888 it was resolved to become associated to form a Hook & Ladder Company to extinguish fires in said village and to incorporate the same in pursuance of the provisions of chapter 315 of the Laws of 1887.

In the offices of Harry T. Hutchinson, Town Clerk of Brookhaven Town, a consent of corporation was signed on October 10, 1888 for the consent of the desire to associate themselves together in a corporate capacity for the purpose of extinguishing fires in said village under provisions of the Chapter 315 of the Laws of 1887.

At the meeting of October 6, 1888 C.D. Terry was unanimously elected as Foreman (today he would be named Chief), George Palmer was elected 1st Assistant Foreman and George Baker was elected 2nd Assistant Foreman. A motion was made and seconded that the Company would meet each Saturday night and a committee be balloted for, to ascertain what a truck would cost and to take instruction from the whole company as to what was wanted or needed. Also, a committee was formed to get subscriptions from the residents to purchase a truck and pay for construction of the first firehouse.

At the meeting of November 2, 1888 a motion was made and seconded that a lease be signed with Mr. Osborne on the property 350 feet west of the center of town, on Main Street, raise $360.00, draft plans and erect a 20 x 40 ft. building, 8 ft. inside height with wooded floors to house the truck of the East Moriches Hook & Ladder Company. The truck committee was empowered to use their own judgement in selection at a cost not to exceed $400.00.

At a December 2nd, 1888 meeting it was announced that all material for the building had arrived and construction will begin. Three dollars were subscribed by members present for lamps for the truck house and a committee formed to purchase same. The following resolution was adopted by a vote of the members at the meeting. Be it resolved: "The trustees of this Company be and hereby are authorized to mortgage the property of this Company to the amount of Four Hundred and Fifty Dollars ($450.00) previously appropriated and also to insure the property of this Company and to have the policy made to the mortgagee as his interests may appear." Discussion was held to the pattern of the new uniform that each member will purchase prior to July 4th.

The meeting of January 12, 1889 was called to order in the new Truck House on Main Street. The major discussion at the meeting was that each member would need to pay 10 cents to receive a key to the truck house and if a member loses his key he must replace the key at his own cost. Also, honorary members could receive a key as long as they paid the 10 cents. All the necessary legal papers for the Company were drawn up by George T. Osborne. He submitted a bill for $7.00 of which that amount was donated by him to the Company. A vote of thanks was given to him.
