Recently, the Northport Fire Department held additional live fire trainings, on Shore Road and Atlantic Highway.  The opportunity to train in live fire conditions are very rare and the department is very appreciative of these generous donations.  Training was conducted in such a way as to minimize the risk to our firefighters while gaining valuable experience under controlled conditions.  Firefighters were able to hone their skills doing ventilation, fire suppression, water supply and incident command.  We would like to encourage anyone who has an interest in joining the fire department or just learning about what we do to come to a monthly meeting.  We meet on the first Tuesday night of every month at 6:00 p.m. at the Beech Hill Station.
