Michael Sahn and John Christopher Successfully Represent Roslyn Rescue Hook and Ladder Company #1 in Obtaining Approvals for a New Firehouse

Wednesday, May 4, 2016

UNIONDALE, NEW YORK —Sahn Ward Coschignano, PLLC has announced that Michael Sahn and John Christopher successfully represented the 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 the 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 The existing firehouse is obsolete and no longer sufficient to allow Roslyn Rescue to serve the public for both fire rescue protection and emergency services. The new, two-story firehouse will have approximately 14,000 square feet, providing space for six trucks and other vehicles to be safely garaged.

The approval process took almost three 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.

Roslyn Rescue has served the community since 1852. Its service area comprises approximately 16 square miles and includes unincorporated areas of the Town and all or parts of several Villages, including North Hills, Roslyn, East Hills, Roslyn Estates, Brookville, Old Westbury, Flower Hill and Roslyn Harbor.

Acknowledging the selfless service of Roslyn Rescue’s volunteers, who respond day or night, 365 days a year, to answer emergency calls, Mr. 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.”
