On Saturday, May 5, the Fire Department held a Vehicle Extrication Drill in Battery Marcy in the Parade Ground. Working on four donated vehicles, the volunteers, under the guidance of Chief Dan Sicilian from the Suffolk County Fire Academy, went to work learning on how to properly secure vehicles, protect victims, multiple ways to remove doors, hoods, and roofs and how to safely remove a victim.

The Fishers Island Fire Department holds regular monthly drills that cover multiple skills and applications needed to help protect the residents of Fishers Island.
