Malverne Fire Department 30 Broadway, Malverne, NY11565 When the fire department in Malverne was created in 1911 it was called Norwood Hook & Ladder Company. The first fire…More engine was a small hand-drawn cart equipped with leather buckets, a few short ladders and firefighting tools. A year later, the company acquired its first utility truck, which had extension ladders and soon after purchased two lots on Broadway, where the first fire house was built. In 1923, the village signed a contract with the company to establish fire protection for its residents and acquired it 12 years later, changing the name to the Malverne Fire Department. In addition to protecting Malverne, the department also responds to fires in Malverne Park, North Lynbrook and parts of North Valley Stream and Franklin Square. All of the volunteers who serve as firefighters are residents of either Malverne or areas that comprise the fire district. They have all completed classroom and hands-on training through the fire academy and the firehouse. Young adults between ages 13 and 18 can also join the Junior Firefighters program.
The Lakeview Fire Department provides fire protection and emergency response services for Lakeview and parts of West…More Hempstead and Rockville Centre. Originally, this station was known as Company 1, and was one of two stations covering this area. In 1993, Company 2, which was located on Hempstead Gardens Drive, closed its station and the two units merged to form the Lakeview Fire Department.
The department is comprised entirely of volunteers who reside within the communities they serve. These individuals are all CPR certified and have completed training at the fire academy and in the field. The department's fleet of engines and trucks also includes an ambulance which is operated by trained EMTs and firefighters.
The department holds fire safety programs at local schools and street fairs, and invites youth groups to tour the station. Starting in 2011, the station will be holding blood drives.
