The Hamtramck Firefighters are very excited to kick-off our 100th Year Anniversary Celebration with the Detroit Tigers! On Friday, January 24th the Tigers Winter Caravan will stop by the Hamtramck Firehouse to present us with a special Tigers jersey and meet with us.
We need your help to make the Hamtramck Parks look amazing for the RED WHITE & YOU: 4th of July Celebration. We’ll be cleaning up the parks with our friends at Hamtramck Public Schools, Hamtramck Recreation and Destination America – starting with Veteran’s Park on June 19th & 20th starting at 8:00 am each day.
You can pitch in by showing up either or both days – we’ll be hard to miss. Let’s make Hamtramck look great for Destination America and USA WEEKEND Magazine.
Both days we’ll start at 8:00 am and end at 4:00 pm. We will have refreshments and a light lunch available.

The Hamtramck Fire Department is proud to announce that we have won Destination America and USA Weekend’s Red, White & You contest on behalf of the city of Hamtramck. The contest will bring a spectacular 4th of July Celebration to Hamtramck during our 100th Anniversary. Our entry in this contest was spearheaded by Fire Chief Paul Wilk and written by Motor Engineer John Dropchuk. We were chosen as one of two grand prize winners from nearly 2,500 entries. The contest asked us to describe why our city deserved a 4th of July Celebration.
A Gala celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Hamtramck Fire Department was held on September 26, 2014. Retirees, current and former Hamtramck Firefighters attended with their families, friends and guests.
