Meeting Reports I received a report from Kit, but I decided to combine it with my own notes for this meeting since my notes had a little more detail about the presentations. Kit's report will appear in Fire News, so you can read it there when it comes out. Attendance was taken during dinner. Perhaps sign in at arrival next time? Steve Velasquez led with the pledge of alliegance. He mentioned that Hale might be doing a class for a full day or two half days at Setauket FD and wanted to get some feedback if this was something others would be interested in. The idea was well received. He thanked Fire Research Corporation (FRC) for their hospitality and excellent Electrical Training Day. The membership has always had electrical training high on their wish list.

Meeting Reports After close to fifty members enjoyed a wonderful dinner, President Steve Velasquez opened the March 24 meeting at the Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department in Great Neck.

added note: (4/1/05): left out of the original posting! Special thanks to Fire News for the theater tickets given away as raffle prize.

Steve led with the pledge to the flag and told the members that 13 of them had taken 27 tests the night before at SUNY – Farmingdale. Chris Lo Preto, our own Sayville mechanic and former LIEVT president, who moonlights as a professor of automotive engineering, had conducted a class to prepare them for the test. He plans to do the same for the next test which will be held on a Saturday morning in June. Chris had arranged for this past test to be held on a weekday evening which earned praise from member Phil Santoli. LIEVT sponsored the test and paid for the proctor. He mentioned the questionnaire that Kit handed each attendee. He stressed the importance of the website, http://www.lievt.org and urged the members to become familiar with it. More folks seem to be using it. He pointed out the literature that was available for the members.
