SACKETS HARBOR, N.Y. -- The Village of Sackets Harbor same together to honor the memory of a fallen firefighter.
Garrett Loomis was killed in a silo explosion in the Town of Hounsfield in 2010. They dedicated an antique pumper house in Garrett's memory.
The building is located across the street from the Sackets Harbor Fire Station Number 1 and the village municipal building.
Mayor Eric Constance says it's important to have this lasting tribute.
“This is an extremely important event because it gives our Village and the Town of Hounsfield a chance to actually memorialize our fallen firefighter and it’s been done at Fort Drum last year. We worked with the Loomis family to try and have something here in the village and we arrived that this would be the best time to do that,” Constance said.
Garrett Loomis’ parents unveiled a brass plaque memorial on the front wall of the pumper house.
