American Flag Retirement Drop Boxes

Each year Fire Rescue receives many flags dropped off at our Headquarters and Stations for proper disposal.

  • The flags are collected, and a flag retirement ceremony is held each year on Flag Day.
  • The ceremony includes Fire Rescue, the Boy Scouts and the American Legion.

Fire Rescue worked with Eagle Scout candidate Peter Rougeux to complete his Eagle Scout community service project. The project installed flag drop boxes for older and tattered American Flags that need to be retired correctly.Peter Rougex standing next to Flag Retirement Box at HQ

The drop boxes are located at three locations:

  • Fire Rescue Headquarters
    40 Summit Drive (Mid-Island)
  • Behind Fire Station 1
    off Executive Park Drive (Off Pope Avenue - South End)
  • Fire Station 5
