Our hearts are with the Valley Stream Volunteer Fire Department as we mourn the the Line Of Duty death of Ex Captain Mike Field. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. MAY HE REST IN PEACEIt is with deep regret the Chiefs and Officers and Members of Rescue Company #1 regret to announce the Line of Duty Death of Ex-Captain, EMT and 33 year member Mike Field. Mike joined the department in April of 1987 and rose through the ranks, serving the company as Lieutenant, Captain and since 2007 as a warden on the departments fire council. He served as an EMT in New York City for over 15 years. On September 11, 2001, Mike was working New York City Fire Department (FDNY) EMS unit 12 Charlie and responded and operated at the World Trade Center before and after the collapse. After retiring from the FDNY, Mike worked for Incorporated Village of Valley Stream. He is survived by his wife Stacey and sons Steven, Richie, and Jason. His sons followed in his footsteps and are all firefighters in the Valley Stream Fire Department. Steven and Richie also followed Mike and are EMT’s with the FDNY. Mike also served many years as the departments advisor to the Valley Stream Junior Fire Department.
A memorial service will be planned at a later date.

**** REMINDER ****
Due to current restrictions and social distancing requirements The Woodmere Vol. Fire Department will not be able to accommodate the annual biur chametz/bread burning on the morning before Passover.
Please reach out to your local rabbi to discuss the best way to safely accomplish this.
We ask that you do NOT burn bread at home as this poses a safety issue for our neighborhood and first responders.
We wish the entire community and happy, healthy and safe Passover.
