Release Date: February 09, 2009

Councilman Francis Sheehan and I stopped by at the scene of the fire at 33 Oak Street around 11:15 PM. By time we both arrived at the the fire - the fire was out. I spoke to one family at 90 Manhattan Ave (temporary shelter). They were waiting for permission to get back into their apartment. According to some of the firefighters who I spoke to only one apartment in the building was damaged significantly. This was good news. When I was first alerted to the fact that there was a fire - we thought more people would need to be evacuated.
I was very impressed with the procedures being used with this fire. And, evacuation procedures. First -- the Fairview, Hartsdale, Greenville and White Plains fire departments deserve our thanks for effectively responding to the fire. The police chief, John Kapica the Town Board of the fire. I also received a call from James Robinson, a Fairview Fire Commissioner and Deputy Commissioner at the Theodore Young Community Center. We were also advised of evacuation procedures. Displaced residents would be sent to a holding area at 90 Manhattan Ave. If overnight shelter would have been needed - we would have opened up the Community Center for residents.
Although we hope that we will never need to use our town facilities as emergency shelter - the town is prepared for emergencies and will offer our facilities to the community if there is a need. Today's fire highlighted the fact that the town is prepared for an emergency.
