Greece Fire Agencies “Fill the Truck”
Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort to Freeport FD< Long Island, NY

The North Greece Fire Department was one of the Fire Departments deployed by Monroe County to Long Island NY to assist immediately after Hurricane Sandy hit the New York area. North Greece F.D. made multiple 72-hour deployments providing fire/rescue labor and apparatus to the Long Island areas. NGFD personnel handled search and rescue, water rescue, and multiple structure fires. Some of the deployments worked out of the Freeport Fire Department Station, an area hit hard by the storm. The loss suffered by the residents and reported back by the crews drove the formation of a relief effort to aid the residents of Freeport. This program quickly spread throughout the Greece F.D.’s, Town of Greece, Schools, Churches, YMCA, local businesses as well as Communities outside of our general area. The generosity of everyone was overwhelming. We were able to deliver 1000’s of pounds of food and needed supplies on Dec 8 2012 to the Freeport Residents.

We want to say THANK YOU to all the organizations that have helped Fill the Truck with supplies for Hurricane Sandy Relief. The Community has risen up and showed it’s compassion. We have received many donations from a lot of people.

On Saturday, 12/8, the Fire Department brought a truck down to the Freeport Fire Department on Long Island, and delivered all of your donations. The deployment was not without a little interest as one of the inner rear tires of the rental truck failed about 5 hours into the run. A two hour delay and then back on the road.
