For many of us, a long day at work can end with relaxing night at home with our families. Much of the same holds true for the volunteers of the East Meadow Fire Department as well, however, on a regular basis — day or night — these men and women will jump to their feet, and make a run for their cars.

Brian worked for the Department of Public Works in New Hyde Park and as a bartender at Pearsall’s Station in Lynbrook. more

My three sons named her after the baseball player, Kirby Puckett. Never mind that she was a female. To say we’re devastated is an understatement. The house feels empty; someone is missing.
