Today our officers went above and beyond to ensure the safety of our community members. Earlier this morning Eastchester Police Department quickly responded to a structure fire on Garth Rd. Making entry, EPD officers assisted in evacuating residents. Eastchester Fire and Eastchester EMS immediately arrived on scene and began working. As many mutual aid agencies began arriving on scene, it became necessary to shut down Garth Rd to all traffic. Our officers did a great job ensuring all EMS and Fire personnel were able to access the scene without being blocked in. Again, great job by all and a quick recovery to those who had to be transported to the hospital.
