    I WAS ON THE SCENE OF THE SOUTH FARMINGDALE FIRE HOUSE FIRE TODAY.. I REALLY HAVE NO IDEA WHY THEY DID NOT TRANSMIT THE 10.. WHEN I PULLED UP THERE WAS PUSHING HEAVY SMOKE BLOWING OUT OF FRONT DOORS OF FIRE HOUSE AND ROOF. NO VISIBLE FIRE THOUGH.. THE SMOKE WAS BLOWING ACROSS MAIN STREET.. THERE WAS DEFINITLY I THINK HEAVY FIRE IN THE CEILING AND ROOF AREA SINCE THE SMOKE WAS SO HEAVY....

    well less they have to pay of taxpayers money, now they can use insurance money to cover the cost of the new fire house. sounds like a win win to me

    fire was in the ceiling...maybe some damage but i would imagine that the rigs where moved out fast.....if they hadnt been moved out for renovations all ready.

    Ouch is right, unfortunately our fire was in the old section of our HQ, not the new section, and it was caused by the exhaust system for our new generator.

    Default SFFD

    SOMEHOW THE GUY FROM BALDWIN GOT MIXED INTO THIS.

    THE FIRE A THE SFFD HQ INVOLVED LIGHTING AND VENTILATION EQUIPMENT BEING USED BY THE ASBESTOS REMOVAL COMPANY. THERE WAS NO EXTENSION TO THE STRUCTURE ITSELF. ALL EQUIPMENT AND VEHICLES ARE ALREADY OUT. DEMOLITION OF THE TRUCK BAYS SHOULD BE COMPLETED BY 6/14/06. AND YES FOUR NEW BAYS WITH SECOND FLOOR ABOVE IS THE PLAN. SAME CONTRACTOR THAT BUILT PFD STA 3, SAYS THE RIGS WILL BE BACK INTO NEW BLDG BY END OF FEB, 07.
