175th Anniversary Parade and Muster

Webster Fire-Rescue Department 

55 Thompson Road

Webster, MA 01570

Dear Chief, 

We are reaching out to your department on behalf of The Webster Fire-Rescue 175th Anniversary Committee. We would like to extend an invitation to you and your department to participate in our 175th Anniversary Parade and Muster. This event will take place on Sunday July 12, 2020. 

For the first time in over 35 years, Webster Fire-Rescue has the honor of closing downtown Main Street to host a Fire Muster to celebrate the 175th Anniversary of our department.  As you may be aware, Fire Musters are a great way to promote teamwork, camaraderie, sportsmanship as well as some friendly departmental competitions. 

The 175th Anniversary Event will be a day of celebration starting with a parade displaying fire apparatus of all ages, continue to muster events while allowing spectators to walk up and down Main Street, watching and supporting teams as they participate in the various events while enjoying food from several vendors. 

Should your department wish to participate in any of the muster events, we suggest teams consist of    8-10 firefighters.  The muster events that will be taking place are: 

•    Wet Hose Relay        

•    Hose Roll Relay

•    Bucket Brigade

•     Ladder Climb

•    Midnight Alarm 

•    Obstacle Course

•    First water

The winning teams will receive unique, one-of-a kind trophies.  

We hope that you and your department will be able to participate in our celebratory event and we look forward to your response. Should you have any questions, please contact John Hollows at or 774-312-1109 or Chief Brian Hickey at or 508-949-3875 with questions or to register. There are also opportunities for vendors.

Best regards,

John Hollows, Firefighter
