Dix Hills Fire Department: The Early Years.
A historical account written in 1996 and presented to the Department by Ex-Chief Perry Hatch. It chronicles the Department’s formative years, as well as the obstacles it had to overcome into the mid 1950’s.
Ex-Chief Hatch recognized the importance of recording the history and evolution of the department for all future members. This well written narrative, relating his first hand experiences during those earliest years, is truly a gift passed along to the department.
