On Sunday, March 2nd, 2014 at around 1:30PM, Great Neck Vigilant Fire Company Assistant Chief Josh Forst (839) radioed to Nassau County FireCom that he had just witnessed a car-verus-tree automobile accident and requested that they notify the Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department to respond to the Long Island Expressway south service road just west of New Hyde Park Road. Deputy Chief Candan (8704) was on the road and heard Assistant Chief Forst make the notification and immediately requested that M-LFD Companies 3, 5 and the Ambulance Unit be dispatched to the reported location. 

Deputy Chief Candan arrived on the scene a minute later and reported that the two occupants of the vehicle had self-extricated, slowed down the response of the fire units and requested that both ambulances continue into the scene to evaluate both occupants. M-LFD Ambulances 8768, 8769 and EMS Fly Car 8799 all arrived on the scene within minutes and transported both occupants to North Shore University Hospital. All M-LFD units were released from the scene within twenty minutes by Deputy Chief Farrone (8705).  Click below for additional photographs from this incident.

On Friday, February 28th, 2014 at 4:24PM, Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department Companies 1, 2, 3 and the Ambulance Unit were toned out to 8 Old Pine Drive in the Village of Flower Hill. Chief of Department Pisani (8702) was the first unit to respond and was advised of a 9-1-1 hang up reporting a house fire at the location. Chief Pisani arrived on scene three minutes later and reported that he had "smoke showing" and requested that the Firefighter Assist and Search Team (FAST) be notified to respond. After locating a fire in a room on the first floor of the 2 ½-story private dwelling, Chief Pisani transmitted a “Signal 10” for a working house fire. 

Engine 8712 and Quint 8728 were the first two pieces of fire apparatus on the scene. The crew of Engine 8712 stretched a 1" ¾ hose line, while the crew from Quint 8728 performed searches and vented. The crews from Engine 8735 and Tower Ladder 8724 assisted the first-due units and also checked for any extension. All searches throughout were negative and there was very minor extension to the floor above. The Port Washington Fire Department responded to the scene as the Firefighter Assist and Search Team (FAST) with Rescue 8522 and Assistant Chief Vogley (8502). 

The main body of fire was knocked down rather quickly and the scene was placed under control within twenty minutes. The Nassau County Fire Marshal’s office was called to the scene and is currently investigating the cause of the fire. All units were released from the scene by Chief Pisani in an hour.

On Thursday, February 21st, 2014 at 8:21pm, Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department Companies 4 and 5 were dispatched to an interior odor of smoke at 14 Tanners Road in the Village of Lake Success. Deputy Chief Candan (8704) was the first unit to respond and was advised while en route that Lake Success Police Department units on scene were reporting a working fire at the location. Deputy Chief Candan arrived on scene a few seconds later and reported that he had smoke showing out of the attic vent and eaves. He also added that all occupants were out of the house and requested the addition of Company #3, the Ambulance Unit and to start out the F.A.S.T. 

Engine 8758 was the first piece of apparatus to arrive on the scene. Captain Chen of Company #5 entered the house and reported that he had visible fire in the attic of the 1-1/2 story private dwelling. After receiving this report, Deputy Chief Candan proceeded to transmit a "Signal 10" for a working house fire. The crew of Engine 8758 stretched a 1" 3/4 hose line, while the crew from Ladder 8743 began to access the attic’s crawl space and open up the ceiling from below. A second precautionary 1" 3/4 hose line was stretched by the crews of Squad 8759 and Engine 8756, but was not used. The crews from Engine 8735, Rescue 8730 and Tower Ladder 8744 checked for extension and performed searches, which were all negative. Deputy Chief Kiess (8701) was in command of interior operations. 

The New Hyde Park Fire Department responded as the F.A.S.T. (Firefighter Assist & Search Team) with Tower Ladder 175. The fire was placed under control by Deputy Chief Candan within thirty minutes and units began taking up within an hour.

On Saturday, January 18th, 2014 at 8:05PM, Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department Companies 1, 2, 3 and the Ambulance Unit were dispatched to 32 Stone Hill Drive South for a reported house fire. Deputy Chiefs Candan (8704), Kiess (8701), Farrone (8705) and Chief Pisani (8702) all responded within seconds of one another and were all informed that the caller stated their house was on fire. While en route, units received updated information that a second call had been received reporting fire, N.C.P.D. units were on the scene asking for fire department units to “step it up”, and the automatic fire alarm for the residence coming over. Immediately following that transmission Chief Pisani (8702) requested that the Port Washington Fire Department be notified to respond as a Firefighter Assist & Search Team (F.A.S.T.) because with this new information it sounded like units were responding to a working fire.

Deputy Chief Kiess (8701) was the first unit to make entry to the house and advised Deputy Chief Candan (8704) that everyone was out of the house and accounted for and that he had a smoke condition on the first floor and an even heavier smoke condition in the basement with a very strong burning odor. Engine 8740 had a crew in quarters and was the first piece of apparatus on the road and arrived on the scene with Engines 8711 and 8735. All three Companies stretched two 1” ¾ hose lines to the front door of the 5,000+ square foot 2.5-story house. After the hose line was charged, the crews of Engine 8740 and 8711 began to advance into the basement where they encountered high-heat and visible fire.

After knocking down what they believed was the main-body of fire, crews began opening up the surrounding areas of the basement and realized that they in fact had a well-developed advanced fire which was already in the walls and ceiling before their arrival. At the same time, crews operating inside the house on the first floor now had visible fire extending through the floor boards and realized that the first floor was becoming spongy and starting to sag in certain locations. In the front foyer, the floor actually began to tear away from the wall. After observing this, Deputy Chief Candan (8704) transmitted an “urgent” message and had all members evacuate from the structure immediately, as it was now obvious that the light weight wood construction of the house was beginning to fail and the results would be catastrophic. Seconds after the last member exited the structure the entire front foyer area of the first floor collapsed into the basement and was engulfed in flames. Shortly thereafter, the rest of the entire first floor failed and the fire rapidly began to consume the rest of the structure.

On Wednesday, January 1st, 2014 at 10:02PM, Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department Companies 1 and 2 were dispatched to the “Our Lady of Grace Convent” at 29 Shelter Rock Road in North Hills for an alarm sounding and odor of smoke.  Deputy Chief Kiess (8701) was the first unit to arrive on the scene and advised the other incoming units that he had a smoke condition on the first floor of the convent with a strong burning odor.  After continuing his search for the source of the smoke condition, Deputy Chief Kiess located a fire in the boiler room of the very large convent.  Upon hearing Deputy Chief Kiess’s transmissions, Chief of Department Pisani (8702) transmitted a “Signal 10” for a working fire.

The transmission of the working fire added Manhasset-Lakeville F.D. Company #3, the Ambulance Unit and the Port Washington Fire Department for a Firefighter Assist and Search Team (FAST) to the initial alarm assignment.  The crew of Engine 8712 stretched a hose line to the boiler room to extinguish the fire, while the crew of Quint 8728 performed searches and vented.  A second hose line was stretched to a room adjacent to the boiler room where there was minor extension.  All visible fire was knocked down within ten minutes and crews from Companies 1, 2 and 3 performed overhaul to ensure that all fire was extinguished.  The Nassau County Fire Marshal’s office was notified for an immediate investigation and all units were released from the scene within an hour.

Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department units on the scene included Engines 8712, 8711, 8725, 8735, 8733; Quint 8728 and Tower Ladder 8724; Heavy Rescue 8730; Ambulances 8768 and 8769; Fire Police Unit Van 8790; Chiefs Pisani (8702), Farrone (8705), Kiess (8701) and Candan (8704).
