The Melville Fire Department recently dedicated a new heavy rescue truck and ambulance at a wet down ceremony held at fire headquarters. The Spartan Custom Heavy Rescue Truck carries a full complement of rescue equipment including three sets of Hurst “Jaws of Life” tools and rescue airbags. The PL Custom Freightliner ambulance is the largest of the Melville Rescue Squad’s five Advanced Life Support ambulances, carries two stretchers and is first due on all auto accidents. Dix Hills, Huntington Manor and Wyandanch FD’s helped Melville christen the new rigs, and got a tour of the new apparatus. Chief Jason Bernfeld recognized the Board of Fire Commissioners and the truck committees for their time and effort in approving, developing and building these two emergency vehicles which will serve the residents of Melville for many years. Commissioner Max Lituchy thanked the members for their dedication and assistance in bringing these state-of-the-art trucks to Melville.
