On Tuesday, July 19, 2016, at approximately 6:49 p.m. M-LFD Company 5 was dispatched to a reported brush fire in the rear of 12 IU Willets Road. Upon the arrival of E8758 a large rubbish fire was located at the demolition site of a former large private dwelling. The crew of E8758 immediately stretched a hose line and began extinguishing the fire, and requested that E8756 respond and use an entrance on the west side of the large piece of property. Due to the volume of fire spread across a large area which was difficult to access, M-LFD Companies 1, 2, 3, and the Ambulance Unit were all requested to respond to the scene. M-LFD Company 4 was placed on standby for all calls within the district. 

Crews operated multiple handlines as well as the deck gun from E8711 and portable master stream for E8756 to extinguish the fire.  Additionally, the Nassau County Fire Marshal's Office responded with their rehab unit, Investigations Division and Hazardous Materials Division to assist M-LFD crews at the scene. All units were released from the scene by Chief of Department Kiess shortly after 11 p.m.

On Saturday, May 21st, 2016, at approximately 12:18 a.m., Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department Companies 1, 2, 3 and the Ambulance Unit were dispatched to 94 Bridge Road in Manhasset for a reported structure fire.  Chief of Department Kiess (8701) was the first unit to respond and was advised by M-LFD dispatch that he was receiving multiple calls for a fire in the rear of the house at 94 Bridge Road in Manhasset.  Chief Kiess arrived at the scene at transmitted a Signal 10 for a working fire, with a heavy volume of fire visible in the rear of the residence, on the second floor. 

The crew of the first due Engine, 8712, along with the crew of E8735 stretched two hose lines into the interior of the home and performed an aggressive interior firefighting attack after the crew of Q8728 located the main body of fire.  While operating inside the home, it was discovered that the fire was well advanced in the attic of the home, and had spread across the entire house.  The interior attack crews were ordered to evacuate the building after a large portion of the roof began to collapse.   Q8728 set up their master stream, and multiple hose lines were positioned around the home to begin an extensive exterior attack.  At this point M-LFD Companies 4 and 5 were requested to respond to the scene with TL8744 and E8758.  TL8744 was set up on Park Woods Rd and began using their master stream to assist with extinguishing the extremely large volume of fire.

On May 18, 2016, at 1:25 p.m., M-LFD Companies 3, 5, and the Ambulance unit were toned out for an overturned truck with possible entrapment on the West bound LIE between New Hyde Park Rd., and Community Drive. Ex-Captain Chen was first on scene and advised there was an overturned construction truck on the center median, negative entrapment but an active fuel leak. Deputy Chiefs Stone and Gobbo were on scene moments later as was Rescue 8730 and Squad 8759. The driver of the truck was transported to NSUH by NCPD EAB. The crews of 8730 & 8759 were able to slow the fuel leak and dyke a storm drain to prevent the runoff from going in. There was a small fire in the cab area which was quickly extinguished by the crew of 8759, and Nassau County Hazmat was called for a diesel fuel and hydraulic oil spill. New York State DOT was also requested for a sander and pay-loader to sand the roadway and pick up the full load of blue stone that was spilled on the eastbound side. Deputy Chief Mazurkiewicz, HR8730, and Ambulance 8767 were relocated from the scene to another MVA at Northern Blvd. and Pickwick Road. All units were released from the LIE at 2:20 p.m., except Deputy Chief Gobbo and E8735 who remained on scene by while the truck was righted.
