Hagerman Fire Department

Organized in 1930, Hagerman protects the community of East Patchogue on the south shore of Suffolk County, Long Island. Sixty active volunteers provide Fire & Technical Rescue services answering approximately 400 alarms annually. Hagerman operated a fleet of cream colored apparatus for 36 years beginning with a 1968 Hahn engine - with the debate brewing over what color was most visible, they decided to try a different color than the emerging lime/yellow trend. Popular among the members, the color scheme existed until 2004 when their ladder truck was refurbished and repainted red & white starting the return to traditional colored apparatus.

When purchased new in 1984, this rig started out as a 75’ rear mount aerial with a canopy cab painted in Hagerman’s then cream color paint scheme. In 2004, after twenty years of faithful service, it was completely refurbished by Pierce with the removal of the aerial, the addition of a 1,000 gallon water tank, four door cab enclosure & upgraded emergency lighting as well as a new paint job thereby beginning the return to red and white apparatus. Acting as a satellite to the ladder truck, it is equipped with a Hurst combi-tool.
