West Hempstead hosts annual Labor Day Drill


The West Hempstead Westerners finished third with a total of 20 points in the annual Labor Day Drill in Hempstead on Sept. 6.

Hosted by West Hempstead, fire departments from different parts of Nassau County competed in numerous drills throughout the afternoon. What began long ago as simple, unsophisticated footraces have evolved into season-long competitions between numerous rival racing teams, with several different classes of competition, along with officiating and modern equipment.
