The following Retro Pic of the Day was originally published on Jan. 4 2016. In honor of the Rumson Fire Department reorganization on Jan. 1 of this year, we are offering a look back at the reorg of 1965:
As tradition goes in the Rumson-Fair Haven area, Sunday was the day of swearing line officers in to the respective fire companies.
So, in honor of the time-honored tradition, the Retro Pic of the Day offers a glimpse back to 1965 and Rumson’s top line officers.
As with all other fire companies, New Year’s Day was reorganization day for the Rumson Fire Department and its two fire companies.
Rumson-Fair Haven Retrospect could not make the event this year, so, via the fire companies’ Facebook pages, we offer a congratulations and a look back at the reorganization with a list of the 2017 line officers in both Oceanic Hook and Ladder and Rumson fire companies.
Oceanic Hook and Ladder Company No. 1 …
