This is back when gerritsen beach mayor. When a storm knocked out the fire boxes he organized 2 days of community fire watch He was also the first chief to have a documented dispute with the fire department. The story goes that we had a fire on Lois and Noel and the city took our supply line off the hydrant. Then, a few days later they came and removed loaned equipment from the FH. It eventually went to the mayor laguardia who resolved the matter.
