The Stewart Manor Fire Department was recently awarded an "Assistance to Firefighters" grant from the US Department of Homeland Security. The fire department used these funds toward the purchase of new self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). Prior to the grant, some Stewart Manor firefighters used SCBA units that were more than 15 years old.
The Village of Floral Park's Substance Education Council, along with various school and community groups, is proud to promote Red Ribbon Week Oct. 23-31. This year's theme is "100% Me ... Drug Free!" Research shows that active, supportive involvement by families and communities can help teens avoid underage drinking and drug use.
