How about the extrealy long responce time from the North merrick Fire department? This fire was closer to uniondale why did the Uniondale Fire District not respond if North Merrick was MIA?
Typical Volunteer Fire departments Slow and always late to respond to emergencys, long as they get 25% reduction in taxes, and free college and there retirement from Volunteer service.

I live around the block, it took North merrick Fire Dept 1 hout to arrive they are the closest and less then 1 mile but took forever to arrive at this fire. Bellmore came faster and they were the next town over. I know for a fast Uniondale was 2nd closest and they were not called. North merrick another Black eye for the Volunteers bad job.

lived in Merrick and was a member of Empire hose on merrick Ave. We had a ton of extra perks, we got 20% reduction in house taxes, pention plan when we retire from Volunteer service, we go to go on a FREE 1 week paid vacation everyyear,I got free college a SUNY westbury, the other fire house would cover our area when we all took 7 day FREE vacation to places like Mexico and we did the same for North merrick when they went away. We got to take home tons of equipment , like old radios, and stuff that got replaced with budget monet. Empire had a large catering hall, big kitchen with high end appliances, Bar, Pit to sleep and watch the bid screen TV with full cabel even porn. LOL The Nassau 1st and 7th pct Cops lived in Empire it was so nice, when on duty. Volley service has a ton of perks don't let these vollys fool you they do it for free thats BS - volleys get plenty in return.
I do not think back and say Volunteer service are over the top and need to be merged or combined, 80% of the equipment never gets used and go bad from no use then givin to memebrs.
