The Sayville Fire Department hosted its Annual Installation of Officers Dinner on Saturday, Feb. 1 at Land’s End Catering Hall.  

The Board of Fire Commissioners administered the oaths of office to the incoming Chiefs and Officers under the watchful eyes of the department membership and invited guests.  The highlight of the evening was when 49+ year member and long time Sayville resident Nicholas Campson was escorted to the front of the rostrum, and much to his surprise, sworn in as honorary chief of the Sayville Fire Department.  

With his lovely wife Ann and daughter Karen at his side, this prestigious honor was bestowed upon him in recognition of his many dedicated years to not only the Sayville Fire Department, but to the fire service throughout Long Island and the State of New York. 

At the youthful age of 86 “Nick” is still an active responder to fire calls currently serving as a Lieutenant of the Fire Police. He attends numerous meetings and in recent years has championed the cause for the construction of the Islip Town Fire Fighter’s Museum, scheduled to break ground in Spring 2014 in Central Islip.  Dignitaries from the community and friends in government were all on hand to present “Chief Nick Campson” with deserving accolades and citations in his honor. Congratulations to Chief Nicholas Campson of the Sayville Fire Department!
