On Sunday, October 30, 2016, Chief John Chavatte led the Lynbrook Fire Department, the Ladies Auxiliary, and Junior firefighters, as they assembled at the Firefighters Memorial on Sunrise Highway to remember and honor six Lynbrook firefighters who made the supreme sacrifice for this village and died in the line of duty.  Also in attendance were State, town, and local elected officials as well as visiting chiefs from our surrounding communities.  Speeches were made by Chief Chavatte and Mayor William Hendrick.  Prayers were said by Department Chaplain Robert Walderman, pastor of the Lynbrook Baptist Church.  A wreath was then placed in front of the memorial marker which lists the firefighter's names as taps were played and the department bell was rung.  After the memorial service everyone proceeded to the Knights of Columbus Hall on Hempstead Avenue for breakfast.  At the breakfast they heard a talk by Chief Robert Hughes of the Nassau County Fire Service Academy in Bethpage.
