Monday 8/3, our neighbors homes on Pine Ave, Aquebogue we’re struck by lightning causing massive damage to both homes. Our home at 40 Pine was spared damage thanks to the quick action of the FD who kept a hose on our structure and fortunately we only had minor heat damage to out siding. Our children and grandkids were asleep at the time and awakened by a neighbor and quickly exited the house to safety. They waited patiently and nervously for news about our home and were comforted and assured by members of the FD & PD throughout. The FD accompanied our son back into the house after and conducted an inspection of it to make sure there was no threat to it. As you are fully aware, events like this are very traumatic and your department went above and beyond to reassure us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for your selfless service. As a show of gratitude, our family would like to make a donation to your department. Please refer ya to the proper channels to do so.

I question if all these mysterious fires and incidents with mobile homes etc. are being investigated properly. Are they just fires that start by mistake, are the gas fires from substandard housing, or are they arson and attempts to kill people like elderly people who may live at these properties, being the Town of Brookhaven anything is possible, any town who has Edward P. Romaine as there supervisor needs to question every fire that takes place. Its about time someone solves these cases rather than just reporting them or ignoring them. GOD BLESS AMERICA Frank P.

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

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!
