It is with deep regret that the Port Jefferson Fire Department announces that ex-Chief and ex-Captain of Hook and Ladder 1 —  and 73-year member — Hugh C. Cambell has answered his last alarm. Ex-Chief Cambell joined the Department after serving in WWII and was monumental in transforming the Port Jefferson Fire Department into an aggressive interior-attack department. His leadership and trainings have stood the test of time as he was looked up to by all members.  Thank you, Chief, we’ll take it from here.
