Please join the membership of the Annandale Hose Company #1 (AHCO) in celebrating our 125th anniversary of service to the Township of Clinton and surrounding communities. On June 25, 1897 the founding members of the AHCO met with the Clinton Township Committee and established the Annandale Fire District #1. It wasn't until December 27, 1897 that the first meeting of the Annandale Hose Company #1 took place and the sixteen (16) original members were enrolled. The Annandale Fire District #1 was charged with fire protection for the entire Village of Annandale and its outskirts.
Today, the Annandale Hose Company No. 1, also known as the Township of Clinton Division of Fire protects the residents and commuters who live and pass through our community on a daily basis. Additionally, we provide mutual aid services to our surrounding communities from two (2) fire stations. Those stations are manned by 42 volunteer members who respond to 450-550 calls for service annually.
From our founding members and all of those that served in between, to the current membership of the Hose Company, we couldn't be more proud of our history and service to the Township.
The current membership, executive committee members, and the Line Officers of the Annandale Hose Company #1 remain steadfast and ready to serve at a moment's notice, and whose mission remains unchanged since June 25, 1897.
Congratulations to all. We are proud to be your leaders and to serve you through this historic time.
President Marc Strauss
