A wetdown is a celebration by fire departments where firefighters from neighboring towns celebrate (party!) a new fire truck by hosing it (and others) with water from their trucks. A new fire truck is a huge celebration planned and budgeted for.

A wetdown is a ritual celebrated by many volunteer fire departments in the United States in which squads of firefighters from neighboring towns ritualistically commission a new fire apparatus by anointing it with water sprayed from the visitors’ firefighting equipment.

You cannot have a Wetdown without the proper swag!

We recommend steins, custom printed t-shirts and giveaways.
