Fire Apparatus Cruise-In

The Cruise-In is an open event for all fire apparatus, new and old. This event is a pre-event to the Muster scheduled for Saturday August 24, and is designed to be a “mixer” event for firefighters, new and old, and civilians to get together in a friendly, festive environment. The Town is blocking off the streets for us to park our fire apparatus on the street and allow us to walk around to visit while having refreshments from three bars and a brewery. The Singerly Fire Company BBQ Team will have fresh smoked sandwiches and there are several restaurants serving food and drinks on the same blocks where the apparatus are parked. There is plenty of parking for POV’s so everyone can come and have a good time.

For those bringing apparatus, please RSVP on your registration form. There is no fee, but we need to know how much space to allocate.

Firematic Flea Market

The Firematic Flea Market will take place at the Singerly Fire Company Banquet Hall. You may reserve your spot at the Firematic Flea Market for $25 per table.

Fire Apparatus Muster
