At 92 grand a year, he needs to rip off the fire dept.? Need the money for drugs? Fire this bastard & throw him in the slammer. Fire the bank employee who accepted the deposit as well Marked for deposit only to the FD, I wonder is the bank employee wasn't getting a kick back?

I 'm sure this is not the first time he took money. He's in the hospital working on a mental or drug abuse defence.

It's funny that this guy is so distraught over his theivery that he needs hospitalization. Hospitalization that will be paid for with community tax dollars as part of his benefits package. Honesty doesn't pay anymore. What the hell is the world coming to?

Just Great,Another board member of the FD, Helping themselves to funds that is for the use of the FD. Betcha he is one of the people who votes to buy the overinflated fire truck with their $30,000 paint jobs and all the extra crap on it that they will never use, because it's always about one upmanship with the other departments.Who has the biggest and most luxourious chiefs cars and fire truck or fancier firehouses, i hope in burns in hell while in jail!

These Fire Commissioners all suffer from "God Complex" as they dole out your tax dollars. Arrogance doesn't begin to describe them.

For 10 years, Carbone served as treasurer of a fundraising group for the future Nassau County Firefighters Museum. Hey Long Islanders, remember this story the next time a volly rings your bell looking for a handout, errr..... a donation to support your local fire department. When the volly rings the bell, bring your town tax bill to the door with you and point out the various references to fire depatment taxes listed on your bill. Then tell him to "Have a nice day". Carbone gives a bad name to real "brothers" like me! A family member of mine in the contracting business went to a local Nassau County firehouse as part of a walkthrough to view the proposed renovations to their kitchen. This guy is an oldtimer who thinks everything is "on the level". Part of the scope of the job was the replacement of beautiful black onyx which was on a wall in the kitchen. He began to question the reason for the replacement of perfectly good onyx and what he was to do with it upon removal. When he was told to throw it out, he blew a gasket. P.S. He didn't get the contract. This is gonna sting a little. I've watched my local guys operate at about six good jobs in my area over the years. They have lost every housefire they responded to. In one case they positioned a tower ladder in front of the fire bulding and put a guy up in the bucket with guess what?.... a video camera. I videoed this because I knew no one I work with would ever believe it. This job started out as two cents worth of fire on a garage door, which communicated to the car in the driveway. Ten minutes later it was through the roof.... not of the car...of the house.Leave firefighting to fireman.

I remember all the times i got to drive the fancy chiefs car to go to the pizzeria to get pizza for the department meetings, these cars had all of the gadgets and bells an whistles, that again is useless here on Long Island, Plus the Huge Brush Trucks for fighting these Huge brush fires we get here on long island, When was the last brush fire of any size?? And don't start me on the racing trucks the "Drill Team" members use, another WASTE of tax payers money!

This article fortunately proves that from Selden to North Bellmore, corruption in the vollies is ALIVE and WELL!!! As most have said, this is just the tiny tip of the iceberg. And as in most improprieties and scandals, the commissioners are the ones ultimately responsible for looking the other way or at the very least, not conducting oversight. They are to busy attending Las Vegas conventions to worry about a few thousand dollars of taxpayer's money. Being a longtime vollie and ex-chief, I can honestly say that if any of the fire districts were to run like a private business....they would all be OUT of BUSINESS!!! If this isn't reason enough to go paid and have all these misbehaven districts under one roof, than I don't know what is.

For 10 years, Carbone served as treasurer of a fundraising group for the future Nassau County Firefighters Museum. Since it opened two years ago, Carbone has served on the museum's board of directors.

I wonder how much more he STOLE over that 10 years.

So what is he into Drugs or Gambling
