** 2 Alarm Parking Garage Fire **
Last night at approximately 22:30hrs @purchasefiredept was dispatched to 2000 Westchester Avenue for a reported motor vehicle fire inside a parking garage. While enroute Car 2411 requested a Structural response due to potential hazards and the size of the parking structure. Upon arrival of the first due units they observed heavy smoke showing from the garage and were advised of a deep seated vehicle fire. Car 2411 transmitted a 10-75 assigning #TMFDFAST to the scene, Rescue 6 responded with a full crew of FAST members. Upon our arrival crews were just getting water on the fire which was approximately 500 feet into the parking garage. Due to the concern of multiple firefighters operating in an IDLH environment with no immediate means of egress , our members worked in conjunction with @pcfd_rescue_40 as an additional FAST team. Once the fire was located it was quickly knocked down without extending further, after operating for approximately 1 hour Town FAST returned to service.

Rescue 6 responded with a full crew of FAST members to this 2nd Alarm fire in Purchase last night.**2nd Alarm Fire inside a Parking Garage**
On Monday, September 13, 2021 at 10:30 PM, the Purchase Fire Department was dispatched to a motor vehicle fire inside of a parking garage at 2000 Westchester Ave. Car 2411 requested a structural assignment due to the potential hazards and size of the parking structure. This upgrade brought in an Engine from the West Harrison Fire Department and Tower Ladder from the Port Chester Fire Department to the scene.
On arrival, units were met with a heavy smoke condition coming from the garage and were advised of a deep-seated vehicle fire. It became clear that access to the vehicle would be complicated and a 10-75 (Working Fire Assignment) was transmitted. On the transmission of the 10-75 an additional Engine from the West Harrison Fire Department, Town of Mamaroneck F.A.S.T, Battalion 19 & Harrison EMS were dispatched.
Firefighters searched through heavy smoke to locate the vehicle on fire approximately 500 feet inside of the garage. Engine 241 with assistance from our mutual aid partners placed the initial hose line into operation. The remaining companies simultaneously performed searches of the vehicle and remaining areas of the large parking structure.
As the incident further developed air management became a growing concern. Firefighters were required to use their breathing air for an extended period to reach the fire. Members were also operating in the IDLH with no immediate means of egress. Reports were given to the Incident Command Post that smoke was travelling into the main building. The need for Carbon Monoxide monitoring and search became necessary.
At 10:48 PM, a Second Alarm was transmitted bringing in assistance from North White Plains (Engine 74), Village of Mamaroneck (Tower Ladder 20), Port Chester EMS, Valhalla EMS Rehab. Port Chester (Rescue 40) was also requested as an extra unit above the Second Alarm for manpower.
These second alarm units assisted with searches of elevators, stairwells inside of the building, monitored for carbon monoxide, and began ventilation operations.
Our Firefighter Assist & Search Team from the Town of Mamaroneck Fire Department stood fast until the incident was brought under control. Port Chester Rescue 40 augmented the F.A.S.T Operation with a second team due to the complex location and large area members were operating. Battalion 19 assisted with resource management at the Command Post. Harrison EMS remained on-scene for the duration of the incident until the potential for injury to public safety personnel had ceased. The incident was brought under control at 11:43 PM as units commenced operations.
The Purchase Fire Department would also like to thank the Harrison Police Department,
the dispatchers at 60 Control as well as all Mutual Aid Companies for their assistance.

Yesterday members attended the Westchester County 9/11 ceremony at Kensico Dam Plaza. This year on the 20th anniversary the county unveiled the 9/11 First Responders Memorial dedicated to those lost due to 9/11 related illnesses.

20 years ago @townofmamkfd Ladder 19 (Left) pictured here responding to the World Trade Center on 9/11/01. It left from the Firehouse on Weaver Street and didn’t return back for days. Crews spent the night at the “pile” digging and searching for survivors. The next morning they reported to a firehouse in the #Bronx to cover calls for days while our #FDNY brothers searched for their own.
This year with a heavy heart we remember Ex-Captain Dennis Tortorella (second from the right). Dennis passed away on May 4th, 2021 due to a 9/11 related illness. He was an active member of the TMFD for almost 52 years and worked his way up to the rank of Captain of Engine Company 37
Today we remember all those who lost their lives on September 11, 2021 and those who continue to perish from 9/11 related illnesses. NEVER FORGET

Last night members drilled on auto extrication at the Mamaroneck Town Yard. Firefighters used various tools and equipment to simulate the different types of extrication. It is important for our firefighters to practice their skills since auto accidents are a common call type for us on both Interstate 95 and on the streets of the Town. Thank You to our friends @vincentservicestation for donating the vehicle. ... See MoreSee Less
