"Equipment is only as good as the man that operates it."

-Chief Engineer Harold Last

This page is dedicated to the past and present members of the Port Washington Fire Department who through their tireless efforts have made the city and surrounding communities a safer place to live.



March 12, 1963 – February 8, 2014


The Port Washington Fire Department is sad to announce the passing of one of its most dedicated members, Engineer DuWyane "Demo" Demge.  DuWayne had been battling lung cancer for the last four years, and remained an important part of the department throughout his rigorous courses of treatment.  His boisterous personality and fighting spirit will be greatly missed by all who knew him.  We would like to thank him for his countless years of dedication to the city.  Rest in peace brother, we have it from here.
