A History of Local Firefighting on the 25th Anniversary of the Sunrise Wildfire
On the 25 anniversary of the historic 1995 Sunrise Wildfire, the Westhampton Beach Historical Society’s 2020 summer exhibit examines the history of firefighting through the lens of the evolution of the Westhampton Beach Fire Department. Special focus is placed on the heroic efforts and cooperative endeavors of firefighters from across Long Island to combat the 1995 Sunrise Wildfire—which devastated much of the Central Pine Barrens in the Greater Westhampton area.
On view at the Westhampton Beach Historical Society (101 Mill Road, Westhampton Beach) on Saturdays, July 25- September 5, from 11 am to 2 pm. COVID-19 precautions for social distancing and mask wearing will be in effect.
