At recent meetings of the Bay Village Civic Association, special guest speakers addressed the members about their departments.
Representing the Amityville Fire Department was 1st Assistant Chief Charlie Scudlo. Chief Scudlo explained the qualifications and training of members of the Department. In addition, he advised the BVCA members on fire safety measures. Questions were answered about rescue training and EMT services, too.
In November, Amityville Police Chief Don Dobby made a presentation about his Department. The Chief explained the extensive training that each member of the force has. The history of the APD and the roles of officers were defined. Some recent events in the community were discussed. Particularly during the holidays, residents were reminded to lock doors and keep valuable items out of view. Chief Dobby requested that we call the Department if we think we see anything suspicious.
Future meetings will address homeowners’ insurance issues and other relevant Village of Amityville community matters. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
