The Last Ride

September 1, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

For the last 133 years, Hose Company # 4 has had a station in the City of Harrisonburg providing mutual aide to the City Fire Dept and running calls to the western region of Rockingham County. Since the 1970s, they have been sharing a fire station with the City of Harrisonburg. As you have read and heard in the news, Hose Co # 4 received an eviction notice in March 2023 with the demand to have all apparatus, supplies, equipment, and memorabilia out by July 1st. After months of attempting to negotiate for more time, a court hearing for an injunction was denied and the eviction date was pushed to September 1st 2023. With that being said, the members of Hose Company #4 want to THANK everyone who has supported us from day one and has voiced their concerns to the higher ups. Even though we lost our home in the City, we are stronger than ever and will continue to run calls as we have always done. Current members and Life Time members are meeting Friday September 1st to have one last meal and ride from our station of over 40 years. We are inviting those that have stood by us and supported us to come by the Rock St Station between 6 and 7pm tomorrow evening so we can personally say “thank you”. The bays and building may be empty on our side, but the memories of 133 years in the city will still be there. At 7 pm, we will be leaving the station for one final ride through the city on every piece of apparatus that we own, with lights and sirens on. Closing the chapter after 133 years in the city with the promise to continue serving our community for another 133 years from our Port Road Station.
