Didn't the Seaford FD also respond to a fire in the northern part of Tackapausha off of Lakeview Ave. in the Manor area last week. also? If so that would make two fires within a week at the Preserve. More importantly I would personally like to thank EVERY member of the Seaford FD for their outstanding dedication and service to our community. These volunteers are hardworking dedicated individuals that keep this community together, from quickly responding to medical 911 calls, to fires, to all their Sandy relief efforts The Seaford Fire Department volunteers should be recognized for their extraordinary contributions to this community. THANK YOU & your families for your service to this community. Lorraine DeVita
