Today, we laid to rest 52 Year Member, Fire Commissioner, Mineola Junior Fire Department Charter Member and Honorary Chief Joseph Conlon of Engine Co.#1. Chief Conlon answered his last alarm on Monday November 27th at 0955 hours. Joe joined Engine Company #1 in April of 1964. He quickly rose through the ranks to Vice President in 1968 and then president from 1969-1970. After serving as a Company Officer Joe took on the challenge as a Department Line Officer and became 2nd Lieutenant from 1973-1975. In 1976 Joe became a Charter member and co-organizer of the Mineola Junior Fire Department; which is known worldwide and was awarded the best Junior fire department in the State of New York. As Joe continued to serve through the ranks he became Captain Of Engine Company #1 from 1977-1979. After serving his beloved Department, Joe would continue to serve many county organizations. He served as the 1st Battalion Delegate from 1980 to present. Warden from 1986-2002. Joes hard work and dedication won him Fire-fighter of the year for Engine Company #1 in 1990. As the years progress, Joe served as Chairman of the 1st Battalion, numerous Nassau County Fire Commission positions and Chairman of the Nassau County Fire Commission from 1995-1996. Joe didn’t stop there he went on to serve as delegate to the Association of Fire Districts, Nassau County Fire Commission Awards Committee and the Association of Fire Districts Award Committee. Joe served his country, the City of New York as a NYPD Detective, and his home town Village of Mineola. He was an out spoken advocate for the wellbeing of all fire fighters and would never give up. He was a true friend of the fire service and will be missed by all. Rest in Peace Joe. #mineolafd #mineolaengine1 #mjfd #nypd #detective #honoarychief #rip

Throwing it back to the original Mineola Fire Headquarters. This Building was next to what is now the Davenport Press Restaurant. The building was known as “Firemen’s Hall” and was located on Main Street, built in 1890; 2 years after the Department was established. Firemen’s Hall housed the Villag administration as well. Firemen’s Hall was knocked down in 1925 when the department moved into the Jericho Turnpike Firehouse with the Village Administration.
