Dix Hills Fire Department NY Prepared for Sandy

The Dix Hills Fire Department (NY) has already taken several measures in an effort to prepare for emergencies that may arise from Hurricane Sandy.

The department conducted fire apparatus and equipment checks, readied generators and fully stocked firehouses with supplies, food and other items.

“On Sunday, we began mobilizing our members and employed two dispatchers to answer calls,” said Larry Feld, chairman of the Board of Fire Commissioners for the Dix Hills Fire District. “Since Sunday evening, we have been responding to fallen trees, downed wires, flooding and other emergencies, and will utilize our high water vehicle where needed.”
