In early 1956 the Centereach Fire Department decided to form into Companies to help the response in the ever-growing community. By April two Companies were formed one of them being Engine Company #1. Engine Company #1 quarters have been at the Headquarters firehouse since its inception in 1956.
The first elected officers were as follows Captain: Arthur Lopa, 1st Lieutenant: Kurt Hauck, 2nd Lieutenant: Joseph Bagliere. The members assigned to Company 1 are those who live in the middle of our Fire District who lived closest to Headquarters.
