Mutual Aid to Valley
Story & photos by Ex Captain Steven Grogan
On November 20, 2016, Lynbrook firefighters were called on
mutual aid to the Valley Stream Fire Department which was battling a
Signal 10 house fire on Emerson Place in Valley Stream.
Lynbrook's ladder 427 and an Emergency Medical Company
ambulance were dispatched to stand-by at VSFD Headquarters on
Rockaway Avenue to cover other alarms in that community.
First Assistant Chief Carl Lengel was at the scene of the Signal 10,
while Second Assistant Chief William Abrams was with the stand-by
units. Valley Stream firefighters fought an attic fire at the
house on Emerson and were able to knock down the fire with one
attack line but due to the large amount of debris in the attic
overhaul took some time. During the fire, Lynbrook's ladder
did respond to a call at Merrick Road and Montague Street while the
Medical Company responded to an aided case.
