1st Due House Fire
May 22, 2015

Just hours after Engine 92 was placed back in service from annual maintenance the alarm was sounded at 3:09am for a kitchen fire at number 18 Drislane. While enroute PD was advising they had a active fire in the residence. Shortly there after car 2052 arrived and struck the 10-75 for a fire showing side A in a 100 x 55 wood frame structure. 92 was the first arriving engine and quickly went to work hitting the hydrant and laying in. Engine 92 crew stretched a cross lay and made an aggressive push into the structure. The bulk of the fire was knocked down within 10 minutes of arrival. Crews from Engine 93 and tower ladder 40 assisted in searches, outside vent and ground ladder placement. Thanks to the quick and aggressive engine work fire was contained to  the kitchen area. This was a classic text book operation by all units on the fireground. All units cleared the scene by 7:15am with no reported injuries to crew and home owners.

Special thanks to Millwood, Ossining, And Croton fire Departments for their mutual aid response.

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.
