Plainfield Vulcans Fish Fry Today

If you're a fried fish sandwich fanatic, as I am, you won't want to miss the Plainfield Vulcans Fish Fry which begins at Noon and runs until the fish is sold out (which means if you come too late, you waited too long).

You can get a fried Whiting sandwich for $5; add $1 for french fries. The event is at Club Cosmo, 1209 South Second Street (next door to the carwash at Clinton Avenue).

The Plainfield Vulcan Pioneers is an organization of Black professional firefighters dedicated to justice and fair treatment in firefighting recruitment and service and good relations between firefighters and the communities they serve.

The Vulcans draw their inspiration from the very first Black firefighters group, The Vulcan Society, formed by New York City firefighters in 1940 at the inspiration of Chief Wesley Williams, the third Black firefighter ever to be recruited to the FDNY, who was determined to see racial discrimination in recruitment and treatment of firefighters brought to an end.

The Plainfield chaper of Vulcans is part of the International Association of Black Professional Firefighters (see their website here).

The fish was delicious, and Plainfield's Bravest were gracious and generous with the portions!
