HFD Receives New Rescue Boat

The Holyoke Fire Department just received our new rescue boat. "Marine 1" is another tool for our multifaceted, well trained firefighters to continue preserving life and property in the City of Holyoke. 

This boat is used for rescues in all the various bodies of water in the city. The new "Marine 1" is a 2014 Crestliner V17 flat bottom 17 foot boat with a 60 horse power Mercury motor. Crews have already begun training on it and the feedback is great!

Holyoke Firefighters Support 2nd Annual Ride to Remember

On September 20th 2014, Captain Anthony Cerruti, Lieutenant Maria Pelchar, Deputy Chief Jeff Przekopowski, Captain Kevin McDonnell, Lieutenant Al Pinsonneault, and Lieutenant Andrew Barsalou joined the Springfield Police Department and other members of Law Enforcement and Public Safety agencies for the second annual Ride to Remember charity bicycle ride from Springfield to Boston Massachusetts. The charity event was organized to honor Fallen Officers Kevin Ambrose of Springfield and Jose Torres of Westfield. The primary purpose of the bicycle ride is to raise public awareness of officers who have died in the line of duty and secondly to raise funds for the Massachusetts Law Enforcement Memorial in Boston Massachusetts. This is the second year Holyoke Fire Department members supported this event. Congratulations to our riders on a job well done!
