Ambulance Donation to Island Park VFD

The devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy was immeasurable. In addition to the countless homes and personal property that was lost, local municipalities, including fire departments were left trying to cope with the loss of property and equipment while trying to do their basic job of helping the public. The Falls Church Volunteer Fire Department (FCVFD) is donated its 2002 Freightliner/Medic Master reserve ambulance to the Island Park Volunteer Fire Department (IPVFD) in Island Park, NY. Flooding caused by the storm surge in the wake of Sandy destroyed the IPVFD fire trucks, ambulance, and heavily damaged the fire station facility. Island Park is a community of 4,700 residents, located along the coast of Long Island, near Long Beach, NY. The IPVFD has been trying to restore emergency services to their community since Sandy's devastating winds, rain and storm surge destroyed their fire station and fire apparatus. This ambulance served our organization well but had a far greater value to our brothers and sisters up north. Chief Schomburg and President Weston delivered the unit to Island Park on Mon, Nov. 19, 2012. Our Department wishes the Island Park VFD the very best for a speedy recovery.
