On Monday, October 27th, 2014 at approximately 4:20PM, Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department Companies 4 and 5 were dispatched to a residence on Lake Road in the Village of Lake Success for an automatic fire alarm activation.  The M-LFD responds to these types of alarm activation numerous times a week, and they are for the most part, false or erroneous alarm activation's.  Every now and then, an automatic alarm turns out to be something a bit more.

Deputy Chief Garrigan (8703) was the first unit to respond to the call and was advised by the dispatcher of a general automatic alarm signal received through the alarm company.  Deputy Chief Garrigan arrived on the scene four minutes later and reported that he had “smoke showing from the attic vents” and immediately requested that the incident be upgraded to a structure fire, which added Company #3 to the original assignment.

On Saturday, October 25th, 2014 at 11:18PM, Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department Companies 3, 4 and 5 were dispatched to the intersection of Windsor Road and Lodge Road in the Village of Thomaston for a reported house fire. Deputy Chief Candan (8704) was the first unit to respond and was advised that multiple calls were being received, all reporting a house fire with two children possibly trapped on the second floor. While in route, the dispatcher advised Deputy Chief Candan that Nassau County Police units were on scene requesting a forthwith response for heavy fire. Deputy Chief Candan arrived on the scene two minutes later and transmitted a "Signal 10" for a working house fire.

Deputy Chief Candan reported that there was heavy fire on the first floor of a 2 ½-story peaked-roof private dwelling and that all occupants were out of the house and accounted for. Ladder 8743 and Engine 8735 were the first two pieces of apparatus to arrive on the scene and had the arduous task of dealing with two houses on fire. Two hose lines were immediately stretched off Engine 8735; one to the neighboring house on Exposure 4, which had caught-on-fire due to the intense heat and flames, and the second hose line operated on the main body of fire. All fire in the neighboring house was quickly extinguished with minimal extension to the interior.

On Sunday, June 8th, 2014 at 10:21am, Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department Companies 3, 4, 5 and the Ambulance Unit were dispatched to a residence on Rose Lane in North New Hyde Park for “smoke coming from the basement”. Chief of Department Farrone (8705) was the first unit to arrive on the scene and advised responding units that he had “smoke showing”. After getting a report from an M-LFD Ex-Captain on scene, Chief Farrone transmitted a “Signal 10” for a fire in the basement of a 1 ½-story private dwelling.

Engine 8758 was the first piece of apparatus to arrive on the scene and its crew hooked up to a hydrant and stretched a 1 ¾” hose line into the basement. The crew of Engine 8758 quickly extinguished the main body of fire which was located in several bays of the basement’s ceiling across two separate rooms. The crew of Ladder 8743 opened up the basement ceiling and walls to check for extension, and a second 1 ¾” hose line was stretched by the crew of Engine 8735 to the first floor, where there was minor extension. A third precautionary hose line was stretched, but not charged. 

The New Hyde Park Fire Department responded to the scene as the Firefighter Assist and Search Team (F.A.S.T.) and the Nassau County Fire Marshal’s office responded to the scene to investigate the cause of the fire. The incident was placed under control by Chief Farrone within thirty minutes and all units were released in a little over an hour.
