The Bridgehampton Fire Department invites the community down to the firehouse at 64 School Street, Bridgehampton, on Sunday, May 15, from 2 to 5 p.m.
The department is christening two new vehicles in its fleet, the Fire Police and Tanker trucks, with a celebratory “wet down” with the help of neighboring departments, around 2:30 p.m.
In conjunction with National E.M.S. Week, the Bridgehampton ambulance company will be on hand with life saving information and opportunities for the public to learn “hands-only CPR.”
Emergency Medical Technicians will offer blood pressure testing and first aid information. Also, the Suffolk Medevac will land at the ballfield next to the firehouse at 3 p.m., and the community will be able to take a peek inside.
Hamburgers, hot dogs, beverages, and ice cream will be served. Information about joining the department will also be available. Tickets will also be sold for the annual Bridge Bucks cocktail party, the department’s annual fundraiser in July.
The Bridgehampton Fire Department will also host a blood drive at the firehouse on Monday, May 16 from 2 to 8 p.m. The New York Blood Center will be taking blood donations. You must be at least 17 years old – or 16 years old with written consent from parent or legal guardian, weigh at least 110 pounds, and be in good health. Please bring identification. Donors will be entered in a drawing to receive a gift certificate to a local restaurant.
