Orangeburg Structure Fire
125 South Greenbush Rd.
January 12, 2011- Wednesday morning at 11:49 A.M. West Nyack FD (Dept 24) was dispatched to a structure fire, mutual aid for 24-Tower, 125 S. Greenbush Rd. in Orangeburg (Dept 11’s area). Chief Jason Papenmeyer (24-1), First Assistant Chief Brian Ulrich (24-2), and 24-Tower were all responding within a few minuets. While in route to the scene, 11-Command requested members of the West Nyack FD to go inside with hooks. The firefighters from West Nyack FD along with many other members of several departments were ordered to overhaul and hit any hot spots. The building which was on fire was both a warehouse and offices for a manufacturing company named Nice-Pak that made pre-moistened wipes. The building was 380,000-square-feet and had sprinklers which helped the fire from spreading. After the fire was out West Nyack FD was sent on a Signal-14. A Signal-14 is when a unit is told to return or is returning to quarters. 24-Tower was back in quarters and in service shortly after. Other Mutual Aid was also requested: Blauvelt FD (Dept 1), Central Nyack FD (Dept 2), Congers FD (Dept 3), Nanuet FD (Dept 8), Pearl River FD (Dept 12), Sparkill FD (Dept 16), Tappan FD (Dept 21), Valley Cottage FD (Dept 22) and Nyack FD (Dept 10) to stand by at 11-100.
