#firesafety... Be Careful with Fire Places Use your fire place safely. Do not burn any plastics or use chemicals to start a fire. Make sure your chimney is cleaned.***Have a Junk Car? Why not donate it to the Fire Department? The Bayport FD needs junk cars to practice vehicle extrication.***
Emergency responders saved a man who was in cardiac arrest last month.
Being in the right place at the right time played a key role in saving the life of a 55-year-old Bayport resident on Tuesday, Jan. 27.
As the second day of blizzard Juno was winding down, Bayport Fire Department Assistant Chief Paul Dolce was assessing the aftermath of the storm. As Chief Dolce was driving home on N. Bayport Ave he saw a man frantically waving his hands and several other people running towards a driveway. Paul stopped his chief’s vehicle and witnessed a man lying on the ground behind a snow blower. Prior to exiting his truck, Paul called Bayport Fire Dispatch and requested further help.
It is with Deepest Regret that the Bayport Fire Department announces that Hose Company 39 year member, Gasper "Gabby" Giarratano, has answered his last Alarm. Gabby was literally an instrumental leader in the reformation of the BFD band in the 1990's ensuring that the Department was always able to march to his beat. He was a dedicated member of the department even assisting during our last major snow standby. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
