Captain Dayton Memorial Service [11-25-18]


Late on the morning of Sunday, November 25th, 2018 the Port Washington Fire Department held a plaque dedication and memorial service in memory of Flower Hill Hose Company Captain Robert “Bobby” Dayton. Dayton was killed on November 26th, 1988 while operating at a Main Street apartment fire with reports of people trapped. Captain Dayton led a search and rescue team into the fire but became trapped and went on to run out of air. Attempts to rescue him were unsuccessful due to intense heat and smoke and he was later pronounced at St. Francis Hospital. The dedication and memorial service was held one day prior to the 30th anniversary of the line of duty death of Captain Dayton. The plaque dedication was held on Main Street where the 1988 fire took place and Bobby tragically lost his life. The memorial service that followed the dedication was held at the Lutheran Church on Franklin Avenue – just a few blocks from Main Street. The plaque will help to ensure that Bobby’s name continues to live on and that his heroic actions are never forgotten.
