New Firehouse for Roslyn Rescue Hook and Ladder Company #1

Michael Sahn and John Christopher led the Firm's successful representation of Roslyn Rescue Hook and Ladder Company #1 in obtaining approvals from the Town of North Hempstead Board of Zoning Appeals to construct a new firehouse in Greenvale. The new, state of the art firehouse will replace Roslyn Rescue's existing firehouse that was originally built in 1966. The existing firehouse is obsolete, and no longer sufficient to allow Roslyn Rescue to serve the public for both fire protection and emergency services.

Roslyn Rescue has served the Roslyn community since 1853. Its service area comprises approximately 16 square miles and includes unincorporated areas of the Town and all or parts of several Villages, including East Hills, Roslyn Estates, Brookville, Old Westbury, Flower Hill and Roslyn Harbor. The new, two-story firehouse will have approximately 14,000 square feet, providing space for six fire trucks or other vehicles to be garaged safely.

Acknowledging the selfless service of Roslyn Rescue's volunteers, who respond day or night, 365 days a year, to answer emergency calls, Michael Sahn commented that the Firm was honored to represent the Fire Company. "This firehouse is for the safety, welfare and protection of the community. To assist the members of Roslyn Rescue in their service to the community was, for us, a great endeavor."

The approval process took almost 3 years, involving many meetings with the members of the Company and the architectural team to design the firehouse to be a facility that will serve the needs of Roslyn Rescue going forward for the next 50 years. There were also many community and civic meetings. And, the support of the Mayors of East Hills and Roslyn Estates was vital to obtaining the approvals.
