The Hempstead Fire Department held its 83rd annual installation and inspection of officers on the night of Saturday, September 18th, 2021. The event began with the presentation of colors by the Hempstead Fire Department Ceremonial Unit and the singing of the National Anthem. Department Chaplain Keith Eriksen gave the invocation and later the benediction. Kyle Boles, who served as the Chief of the Department last year, was sworn into office after not having a dinner of his own in 2020 due to the pandemic. Boles then received his Ex-Chief badges in addition to other citations and plaques. The line officers, Chiefs, and other positions within the Hempstead Fire Department were installed into office at the dinner as well. Various awards were given out including to members who achieved 25 and 50 years of service. Congratulations and good luck to all those installed and awarded – especially Chief Mott who will be leading the Department in the year ahead.
