  1. Not the firefighters – look at al the extra pressure driving ambulances to Oceanside. And the future – I-Star with high floors. This breaks my heart

  2. So besides not having cops who do their jobs we’ll have less FD to fight fires and make EMS calls, KUDOS City Council and Jacky boy!

  3. Nothing on council agenda about layoffs. Community needs the support. We will be addressing it during good and welfare. If no change from the city we will be engaging a full pr campaign prior to next council meeting. Where we will need everyone in the community who cares for their safety to attend and vocalize their concerns.

  4. pseg is terrible. Their phone help line sucks and their Facebook page sucks. As usual, The only one providing any information at all is the city of lb official Facebook page and it’s not the city’s responsibility. Good job Jack. Bad job Cuomo.

  5. If they were funded with grant money, why did we not reapply for the same grant??? Which democrat-lackie failed to do their job at city hall??? And what happened to Mr. “I have extensive experience writing grant applications” (i.e. my name is Lenny Torres). Another “FAIL” by Zapson.

  6. LBFD should be all volunteers and EMT workers for 40,000 a year. There is no reason to spend millions on these guys. Go to all volunteers like everywhere else on Long Island and we have saved untold millions and millions. If we then get professional emts at the proper salary level we will actually be much safer and spending much less.

  7. Everyone just stay calm and enjoy the upcoming holiday season. Just after the next City Council meeting the city will announce the following
    1) they have heard the residents complaints
    2) they have found the money to keep the 5 employees on the payroll
    3) the fire union has agreed to a concession that will allow the city to subsidize the EMS by hiring a private EMT company (think Seniorcare) which will drastically decrease the response time
    4) they are great

  8. Is this one of the guys getting laid off or was he fired??? Did the union stand up for him???

    Suspended L.B. firefighter arrested for shoplifting at Home Depot
    By Anthony Rifilato

    Freeport police arrested a suspended Long Beach firefighter on March 5, after he was allegedly caught shoplifting $63.77 worth of electrical items from Home Depot.

    According to police, the incident occurred at 5:54 p.m., when officers responded to a report of a shoplifter in custody at the store, at 160 E. Sunrise Highway. Freeport Police Chief Miguel Bermudez said that the store’s loss prevention specialist reportedly observed 27-year-old Gregory Kavazanjian, of Long Beach, placing the items in his sweatshirt and attempting to leave the store without paying. Kavazanjian was placed under arrest and transported to Freeport Police Headquarters for processing. He was released on an appearance ticket.

    Last November, Long Beach police charged Kavazanjian with misdemeanor criminal possession of stolen property. Police said Kavazanjian was in possession of a flat head ax and a Halligan firefighting tool, valued at $100 each. The items, police said, were included in lists of missing or stolen items reported by the city as a result of Hurricane Sandy. Police said Kavazanjian turned himself in to Long Beach police on Nov. 24. He was suspended from the LBFD without pay; the case is still pending and the matter is being handled in accordance with a collective bargaining agreement, police said.
