On Sunday November 10th 2013 the Islip Fire Department and the Hauppauge Fire Department teamed up for a Vehicle Fire and Hurst Tool Drill. This drill involved live fire situations and was a great way for the two departments to operate when we normally would not be involved with one another an incident. In major events all agencies must be able to operate with mutual aid companies you normally would not be used to. (Photos by Samantha Ann Photography)
