Each year Fire Rescue receives many flags dropped off at our Headquarters and Stations for proper disposal. The flags are collected, and a flag retirement ceremony is held each year on Flag Day. The ceremony includes Fire Rescue, the Boy Scouts and the American Legion.
Fire Rescue recently worked with Eagle Scout candidate Peter Rougeux to complete his Eagle Scout community service project. The project installed flag drop boxes for older and tattered American Flags that need to be retired correctly. The drop boxes are located at three locations,
• Fire Rescue Head Quarters # 40 Summit Drive (Mid Island)
• Behind Fire Station # 1 off Executive Park Drive (Off Pope Avenue – South End)
• Fire Station # 5 - # 20 Whooping Crane Way (Front Gate of HH Plantation -North End)
Eagle Scouts must spend at least six months in Boy Scouts, earn at least 21 merit badges, and complete a community-focused project that requires leadership and organizational skills. Only a small percentage of scouts achieve the coveted Eagle Scout rank.
