On Sunday, March 11th, 15 members of Echo Hose H&L Fire Co. #1 along with Jumbo (Engine 1) and Ladder 1 brought the “GREEN” to New Haven representing the company in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Jumbo was a great hit as usual and this has been the first time in a long time that Echo Hose has been in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in New Haven. Echo Hose is the only fire company in the state of Connecticut to wear green uniforms which represents our Irish heritage along with our mascot, the leprechaun.
