The Westhampton Beach Fire Department now has four new firefighters.

The Westhampton Beach Fire Department has four new members, bringing the department's membership to 86 firefighters.

According to Chief Chip Bancroft, James Czachur, Bryan Hoffman, Gypsy Adams and Mario Mendoza have graduated the Suffolk County Fire Academy, each completing 110 hours of firefighter training. They are now all certified as level I firefighters.

"Myself and the other chiefs are very proud of this accomplishment," said Bancroft.
