BMFD Open House – April 25th
April 15, 2015

2015 Open HouseThe Briarcliff Manor Volunteer Fire Department and Ambulance Corps is hosting an Open House this Saturday April 25, from Noon to 4:00 pm at our Firehouse next to Village Hall.

We hope that families (dads, moms, and kids) will come join us to see our apparatus, try out gear and equipment, spray the fire hose, practice getting safely out of our simulated smoke house, experience the fire extinguisher demo, enjoy free hot dogs and burgers, and participate in other demonstrations and activities. Most importantly, we hope you will come and chat with us, see who we are and what we do, and maybe even consider becoming a member.

The BMFD is staffed entirely by volunteers from the village and adjacent towns. We are local folks who train and serve without compensation, other than the satisfaction of helping our community. We are grateful for the opportunity to help our neighbors and appreciate the support the community and village continually show us.

Late Night Commercial Structure Fire
April 12, 2015

Flames Bar & Grill Fire  IMG_6606.JPG

Shortly after midnight the alarm was sounded for a commercial alarm at 533 north state rd, Flames Steak House. 60 control notified 2052 that there was a person on the premise without proper passcode stating there was no issue in the restaurant. Units continued in to find smoke filling the structure, and the 10-75 was sounded bringing in mutual aid units from Ossining, Millwood, and Croton. It was apparent there was a fire in the walls and units quickly began opening up to find a small fire in the rear of the kitchen area. BMFD made quick work of the fire before it could extend any further throughout the structure.
