PORT JERVIS, NY -- Like all of the fire companies in Port Jervis Fire Department, Maghogomock Hook & Ladder #7 (Hooks) is busy throughout each year with emergency calls, training, and hosting a number of fundraising events. Hooks firefighters are well-known for their cooking skills, both on the grill and in the firehouse kitchen. Here they are shown making their world-famous chicken barbeque dinner take outs, full course dinners available for pre-order and pickup.

These fundraising events are very popular within the community, and nearly always quickly sell out.
