Realizing the need for additional fire equipment and personnel on the peninsula, a group of concerned Port Washington citizens formed the Protection Engine Company #1 in the fall of 1891.
Headquartered on South Washington street with an Annex building on Channel Drive, Protection Engine Company #1 operates three Fire Engines (“pumpers”) that are each capable of pumping over 1,250 gallons of water per minute on to a fire.
Each of Protection and Flower Hill’s trucks carry some 3000 feet of hoseline ranging in diameter from 1″ (“booster lines”) to 4″ (“supply lines”). At the scene of a fire, Protection and Flower Hill work as a team to provide the necessary agents for fire suppression. Effective fire suppression comes about as the result of successful coordination of the various companies operations.
Apparatus: 8511 – Engine, 8513 – Engine, 8515 – Engine
