NY fire dept. that lost everything in Hurricane Sandy gets engine from local firefighters


BETHEL PARK, Pa. - A local fire department is sending help to a New York fire department that lost everything in Hurricane Sandy.

The Bethel Park Volunteer Fire Company donated a fire engine to the Broad Channel Fire Department in Queens.

The department lost all of its trucks and equipment in Hurricane Sandy.

"We wrote a quick message on there to tell everyone in Broad Channel to stay safe, God bless and we had all of our firefighters sign the door," said firefighter Dave Gerber.

The truck will be sent to New York on a flatbed truck and is expected to arrive sometime Tuesday. A firefighters fund paid for the $2,400 in shipping costs.
