The Tragic Lawrence Fire

Dear Editor,

In regards to the tragic fire in Lawrence, Long Island, which resulted in multiple deaths, I would like to inform Nassau that was there a professional firehouse with professional firefighters less than one mile away from that building, all it would have taken was a 911 call to NYC dispatchers and, God willing, four lives would have been saved.

L-134, E-264 and E-328 is located on Central Avenue and Mott Avenue in Far Rockaway and could have been there in under four minutes with the right communications. Having the best fire department in the world respond to this tragedy might have made the world of difference.
