The city of Island Park, NY was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy, losing all of their fire equipment as well as their fire station.
The village of Island Park, NY has one fire truck, which is one more than it had yesterday, thanks to the city of Roswell.

The effort was coordinated by the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund, named after a firefighter who lost his life in the attack on the World …
