New officers named at Echo Hose Hook & Ladder

Shelton-EchoHoseLogoEcho Hose Hook & Ladder Fire Company No. 1 congratulated its newly-elected line officers for 2015 in a post last night on its Facebook page.

The new officers are: Mike Plavcan, captain; Brian Reynolds, first lieutenant; and Joe Clark, second lieutenant.

Founded in 1882, Echo Hose Hook & Ladder Fire Company No. 1 has the distinction of being the oldest of the city’s four volunteer fire companies.

The company is now downtown  at 379 Coram Avenue, but the original building was on Howe Avenue, next to where Subway Restaurant is today, and served as both firehouse and police station.
