Arthur J. Domino, chairman of the expansion committee, opened the meeting on December 17, 1967 and served as chairman pro temp. He stated that the purpose of the meeting was to organize an engine company for the Depew Fire Department and that the first order of business was to elect a slate of officers. The following were the first elected officers: Lynn Bradley, President; Donald J. Rogers, Vice-President; Lyman R. Josker, Secretary; and Conrad J. Jurek, Treasurer. Frederick B. Furminger and Joseph R. Sorrentino were named as delegates to the Board of Wardens of the Depew Fire Department.
A motion was made and seconded that hereafter this company would be named Depew West End Hose Company Number Six and that the company meetings would be held at the north side fire station until permanent quarters could be built.
A committee was appointed to draw up a set of by-laws for the new organization and was provided with copies of existing by-laws from several of the established companies in the fire department to serve as a model for the organization.
