The GFD would like to thank Ben Taibi, a 7th grader in the Elwood School District for his very thoughtful donation of snacks to the Firefighters and EMTS of the Greenlawn Fire Dept. From what we understand, Ben used all the money he received for his recent birthday and decided to pay it forward by purchasing and donating these items to the first responders. Ben is truly an outstanding young man, and our members were very appreciative of this kind gesture. ...
Greenlawn is a great place to grow up in. True heroes. Way to go Ben and great job GFD. Stay safe!🇺🇸
Awesome you have a big heart. Thank you
Ben is so generous to use his money to buy snacks for the fire department. What an amazing heart!!
I have shared this post onto a page set up here in the UK called HIT THE AMBULANCE GAMERS it is a group set up during the 1st lockdown to show appreciation to all the emergency workers & key workers who have kept working. The idea of the group is if you see an emergency vehicle or personnel you leave them a small token of appreciation be it snacks, drinks or even just a note. It has become very popular here & much appreciated by the recipients. Keep up the good work & stay safe.
His donation should go a ways, since the fire service sleeps until hungry and eats until tired...😜
Thank you Ben! Way to go!
Wow! Nice job Ben!
Way to go Ben !
Job well done 👍
What a super hero.
You're my Hero Ben!!! xo

This past Saturday, members from the GFD made the trip upstate to honor fallen firefighter Jared Lloyd, after losing his life over a week ago battling a fire in Spring Valley, NY.
Firefighter Lloyd was on the first due engine that made the initial push into the adult home that was experiencing a very heavy fire load. After taking part in the rescue of over 100 elderly residents, he returned to the inside of the building after a report of a trapped victim on the third floor was made. He transmitted a MAYDAY after becoming separated from his team and was subsequently killed in the fire and structural collapse.
It was an absolute honor to be in the presence of this mans services, and to be with all our firematic brothers and sisters from all over the country. ...

The Town of Huntington has elected to dedicate March 1st going forward as a day of rememberance for the victims and survivors of COVID-19. At approx. 7 pm the GFD will join in with other departments around the division in sounding our alarm siren to remember all those who have suffered from this horrible pandemic. Please take a moment and think about the loss our communities have endured and how far we have come, from a year ago today
Chiefs and members of the GFD ...
