Wakulla County Fire/Rescue Announces Push-In Ceremony
Wakulla County Fire Rescue would like to invite the public to a Push-In Ceremony to celebrate the arrival of the Department’s new fire engine. The Ceremony will be held on Monday, May 15, 2017 at 9:00a.m. at Fire Station 8, 88 Cedar Avenue, Crawfordville, FL.
Part of the traditional housing ceremony of a new piece of fire apparatus includes having the firefighters and community members “push” the new apparatus into the firehouse. The push-in tradition dates back to the 1830s when fire departments used horse drawn equipment which was difficult to back into the fire house and had to be pushed by the firefighters.
