Tragic line of duty deaths in our community over the history of our Department, especially of Matt Porcari, Steve Gavin, Richard Beck, Winfield Knapp, and Roy Wiltse, prompted the Owego Fire Department to begin hosting the “Fallen Firefighters Memorial Golf Tournament” in 2013. The Tournament’s purposes are:
- To remember our fallen comrades,
- Raise money for improvements, and maintenance of our training facility, and
- Encourage Owego area youth to enter careers as a first responders through a Scholarship Fund, which provides academic awards .
The response has been exceptional!
We hope you will continue to support these very important goals. The Fire Department of the Village of Owego is a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization
We thank you very much,
