As an EXCHIEF of The Bohemia Fire Department and a long time friend of Tom Croci, I think, that, the department made a great man even greater, by naming that portion of Smithtown Ave after Tom. His dedication to Bohemia and the Bohemia Fire Department and his teaching in Connetquot School District, is what Tom was made of, love for all. I played ball with Tom for many years and his dedication to his friends and the game also showed his dedication there.
The Bohemia Fire Department and the District leaders, should be thanked for this great decision. I am proud to have been a part of such a great organization.

I'd like to extend heartfelt thanks on behalf of the Croci/Inserillo families to the Bohemia Fire Department for honoring my father's memory with the street sign at the intersection in front of the Fire Department. My father was a proud Bohemian and loved this community so much. My brother, husband, children and I are grateful to have had such a great man in our lives. Even though he was taken too soon, because of the Bohemia FD, his memory lives on in the very community that he loved so much.

Loved visiting your site. Especially the history. My family had a long
relationship/history with the Bohemia Fire Department. My Grandpa
Richter, my Dad & my oldest brother Rick & my Mom belonged to the
Ladies Auxiliary.
I have many found memories of the Memorial Day Parade & Ice Cream
at the Firebouse, Chicken Barbraques, watching the firematicks drill team,
"The Bohemia Fire Department Suicide Squade". Just to name a few.
Thank You for letting me visit your site. Sincerely, Rose Richter-Govanus

My family and I were recipients of your generosity this Holiday Season. We can't possibly thank you enough for what it meant to us especially my two special needs grandsons. You risk your lives everyday and yet you find the time to go out of your way to help others. God Bless you all and have a Happy Healthy and SAFE New Year.

My Son AJ has recently become a member of the Explorers thanks to Bruce Drago. I couldn't be happier or more proud that my son is involved and learning how to become a caring member of the community. I don't think I could ask for better role models than the Bohemia Fire Department crew. He can't wait to become a full fledged Firefighter! I am so proud of him. Thank you Bruce for inspiring him.

P.S. Lieutenant Hocker, you should conduct workout classes in the house for us 9-5 er's. I would definitely attend!

Thanks guys, for all you do.

Great looking website!! I am a captain with Cool Springs VFD in Statesville NC and we are in process of collecting patches for a patch wall at the firehouse. Our fireman's fund bought 500 of our patches to trade with other departments. In the past month of doing this we have collected over 200 patches from over the world and we would love to have your patch. If you could spare or trade a patch for our project, it would greaty be appeciated by the members of our department. If interested please send to

I would like to express my sincere appreciation to all the Volunteer Firemen that work so tirelessly protecting our area. You spend countless hours away from your families serving our needs. I don't think we could ever spend as many hours from our families as they do theirs and still make the best of their day. This letter is not only to Thank You for all of your dedication and service but I would like to encourage each and every household served by these groups of men and women to make donations to the fire department. The amount should be according to what your household can afford keeping in mind what would we do without them....include it in a Thank You Note and take it to their fire house or mail it to their office.
We as a community must pull together and help each other. I have not figured any other way to help repay them other than this. Please everyone....donate a few dollars and some time to show them just how much we appreciate them after all they have done for us!

What would we do without them?
From Us Personally - A great big THANK YOU!

Hello Brothers and Sisters. I was just looking around your website and thought I would say hello! I grew up in that Fire House as a kid in the 70's. my father Frank Caravetto was a member. I have very good memories and some great pictures of that place! I am currently a third Gen Fireman and credit the Bohemia FD for my roots! Be safe out there! I would love to come visit sometime. We used to live on Locust Ave. i think it was 1365. Wonder if it's still there?

I can't say this enough THANK YOU! Your response to my call to help my sister on Church st. was nothing short of amazing. We couldn't get through to any emergancy numbers. I called your non emergancy number you got someone there in about 3 mins. and also contacted national grid for the gas leak. Something we couldn't do. Thank God for all our VOLUNTEER FIRE MEN AND WOMEN. Stay safe as you continue to help others in need. God Bless you all for everything you do. Sincerly Patricia Pausewang
