The 4th of July turned into a busy day for Mohegan FD. Early in the morning, we marched in the City of Peekskill’s annual Independence Day Parade. This afternoon, Mohegan FD has responded to 6 fire/rescue calls, with most of the calls during some intense thunderstorms. We also responded mutual aid to Putnam Valley Volunteer Fire Department for 2 structure fires, assisted at them at a deck fire, and relocated and stoodby for the late evening structure fire. Here is the breakdown of the calls for the day and evening:
