Location: Lakewood Mobile Home Park Calverton, NY

First, Thank you for your service.

I would like to thank all of the firefighters who responded to the recent fire in our mobile home community. We all know how much worse things could have been here. Our association has addressed the issue of fire safety several times this past year.

Will someone from the fire dept. be willing to meet with us or provide a map of where hydrants are located in the parks in your district. Management has not been able to provide this information to us.

Thank you,
Anne Marie Erickson

Great site, and plays well on my cell phone too!
I'm an honorary member of the Wash, and enjoy catching up whenever I get back to Riverhead, or whatever I run into any of the guys at musters.
Keep up the good work, and be safe. Be sure to let me know if you're coming to the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg.

My deepest condolences to the family of Richie Ligon. His untimely passing is a great loss to the Riverhead community that he so proudly served. I considered him a deer friend and a model for the volunteer fire service. He will be missed.

Just wanted everyone to know the great experience that I had meeting one of your long time firefighters up here in Vermont. I was wearing my station shirt at a free concert event and a man walked up to me and introduced himself. i wish I could remember his name! he said he was a member of the Riverhead FD and had 52 years of service! I don't imagine there are too many members with that kind of service record so maybe you know who I am talking about. Anyway, we talked for a while and then he gave me one of your station patches. i cherish that moment of brotherhood and will enjoy the patch for years to come thinking of that encounter. Stay safe and be well!

Dear Sir:
Thank you for setting the tone by displaying the huge American Flag outside the Riverhead Polish Hall for our "Flag Day" celebration honoring all veterans and active military. We had two honorary guests from the Greatest Generation. Ed Jeneski 90 years old Marine Vet and Ed Cartoski Marine Vet 92 year old Marine Vet. A lot of participants commented how well the Flag looked outside the Riverhead Polish Hall. We were fortunate to have you donate your time for this special occasion. On behalf of the Directors I express our heartfelt thanks for all that you did that special day!
