Hose 4 donates funds to area fire companies

On Oct. 14, Murray Hose Volunteer Fire Company Officers met with representatives from our areas Volunteer Companies. The Volunteer Companies were presented a check from Hose 4 to use for building repairs, equipment or volunteer recruitment.

Murray Hose Company 4 Volunteer Fire Company voted to disband earlier this year for lack of younger firefighters. Their last meeting was Nov. 1 at the Dunkirk Station 4 Fire Hall meeting room. Hose 4 is the last of the great Volunteer Fire Company era. Gone but not forgotten are Pioneer Hook & Ladder, Dunkirk Hose Company 1, Citizens Hose Company 2, Anson Hose Company 3 and Murray Hose Company 4. Thanks to the Dunkirk Historical Society on Washington Avenue in Dunkirk, much of the memorabilia from these great volunteer companies lives on.
