Brookhaven Fire Commissioners (Brookhaven, NY, Fire District), about 1947

.. in front of the new fire station of the Brookhaven Fire Department dedicated August 1947.

In 1947, the fire district had just one fire station. There is now a second station at the eastern end of the district, in Shirley, NY. An addition has also been added to this building to the left. Also, a detached service building has been constructed further to the left (east). A private dwelling behind this site has been converted to fire district offices.

The actual date of the picture is uncertain. A history of the South Country Ambulance Company (successor to the Brookhaven Ambulance Company) indicated that their purchase of a 1938 LaSalle ambulance from the Patchogue ambulance company did not occur until February 1948. The vehicle immediately to the right of the fire commissioners is almost certainly the 1938 ambulance. The vehicle to the extreme right is the 1926 Kissell ambulance also purchased from the Patchogue ambulance company in 1940 at the founding of the Brookhaven Ambulance Company.
