Veterans Day is a day to honor our military veterans for their service to this country. It is a day to salute and thank these extraordinary men and women for the sacrifices they made for our great nation. 🇺🇸
This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave. ~ Elmer Davis

We have all shared unforgettable moments, some include bonding over 6 bottle fires, and we have all relished in the camaraderie over the years spent working in Newport. Among these cherished memories, many of us will recall the incredible "suppers" prepared in our firehouse.
I would like to propose we compile these recipes and stories into our very own Local 45 Cookbook. This collection will not only preserve our culinary traditions but also offer a glimpse into the firehouse from the time period in which you worked.
I’m reaching out to all active and retired members to bring this vision to life. Whether it’s the spicy kick of your legendary chili or the secret twist in your brussels sprouts, blackened chicken alfredo, or sweet and sour chicken that has the crew asking for seconds, your recipe has a place in our cookbook.
To participate, please fill out the form below with your favorite firehouse recipe and include your favorite firehouse story and/or pictures so we can add to your very own page within the cookbook. Don't hold back on those chili recipes that we all brag about.
The idea is simple: share what you love to cook, tell us the story behind your dish or your favorite story, and together, let’s create a collection that reflects Local 45 and the stories that come with working in Newport.
Jim Schafer Swiss steak. I’ll send the recipe he taught me well
Well I didn’t cook but I sure did have some outstanding meals there. These people need to be found and encouraged to submit.

The Duve family has a couple of recipes and newspapers clippings to share. Donald Duve 1956-1984. Mrs. Browns took firehouse cottage ham during a run.
