The Floral Park Fire Department has maintained a stalwart presence in the community for more than a century. It boasts three station locations—Vernon Street and Floral Boulevard (headquarters), Holland Avenue north of Jericho Turnpike, and Atlantic Avenue and Pine Street—which are home to five companies: Rescue Co. #1, Hook & Ladder Co. #2, Alert Engine Co. #1, Reliance Engine Co. #2 and Active Engine Co. #3. All told, the department comprises more than 100 volunteers.
While that is an impressive number, it is down from a decade ago.

In 2012, Howard Kroplick was named town historian for the Town of North Hempstead. Now, two years later, he has published a pictorial history of the town, including several historical accounts of Floral Park, simply titled North Hempstead, a volume brought out by Arcadia Publishing as part of its extensive Images of America series.
“As town historian, it was the logical thing to write such a book,” Kroplick said. “This is the first published book on the town.” The volume, he added, is “long overdue” and also a publication that coincides with the 400th anniversary of the town’s discovery by the Dutch explorer, Adriaen Block.
