@ Empire Hose and Former Volley you talk about empire like they have anything to do with this fire. Former volley not sure what empire you belonged to but it must have been a different one than I belonged to for over 15 years. Empire hose what the hell is "pumper fire trucks" are you talking about an engine? If so check your facts you will see your response times are way off. In fact why don't you call North Bellmore dispatch and ask them what the response times are. I don't mind people talk crap, just wish their crap was right. Oh and by my name you should know who I am "If you know members in Empire" Why dont you call me if you think I am wrong (PS Guy WHO WENT TO suny REALLY A FREE EDUCATION FROM SUNY, try again

40$ tax break on home taxes
1 week free vacation - airfare and hotel
partys in exclusive fire house halls.
perks like free use of equipment and 1st dibs on equipment never used paid by tax payers.
Volleys biggest tax scam in Nassau & Suffolk countys

Lets be honest, We are all tired of the Volleys Drills, Race teams, parades, over the top fire houses, numerous unused fire truck and fire equipment.
The Fire Dept Volunteers response to emergencys is always slower then paid Depts, and we still pay and the volunteers on LI, they get Free College, Free Insurance, Free Pension and retirement, Free Vacations, and discount $35% of home property taxes - that does not sound like a volunteer job with so many perks.

Thanks for getting my name right but thats the only thing right. First of all The dry cleaners is in the town of North Merrick , however parts of North Merrick is covered by the North Bellmore Fire Dept based on district lines established in the 1920's. The incident commander at the Dry Cleaners called the resources he deemed were needed at the scene and to backfill his firehouses for additional alarms. The North Bellmore Fire Department and all the other Volunteer Fire Departments are made up of dedicated men and women who serve their community. They are professionals most of these volunteers joined before as you refer to all the perks they get. So instead of wasting your time sitting at the computer criticizing people get up and do something for your community! So get your facts straight: First yes there is a service award program that was created for recruitment and retention purposes, yes volunteers do attend training seminars in and out of state, some volunteers do get a tax reduction however all the aforementioned are not why a person becomes a volunteer, they join because its neighbor helping neighbor. Any questions feel free to call me

You are a moron it is only 1/10 of a mile from Uniondale why would North Bellmore be responsible? it is close to North Merrick friendship then any other firehouse.
Just like a typical Volunteer fire district on Long Island no responsibility no accountability just blame someone else.
This is just more proof we need full time paid professional fire departments on Long Island. enough with lettering fire fighters A,B,C,D who can only baby sit and not respond to a emergency.
Most volleys can barley walk, no less fight fires - they are slow to respond, no efficiency, and get tons of high end perks,like pensions, benefits, reduction in taxes, for doing nothing !
