Farmingville, NY -  For the fifth consecutive year, Supervisor Ed Romaine and the Town of Brookhaven Fire Marshal’s office has partnered with SUNY Farmingdale’s Architecture and Construction Management students to assist in the completion of their Service Learning Existing Condition Drawings Project. The Town-owned buildings that were included in the project were the Sandspit Ferry Terminal, Marina Tower and Shed in Patchogue; Carmans River Canoe and Kayak II in Brookhaven and the Moriches Bay Recreation Center in Center Moriches. Each building was visited, sketched, measured, photographed and drawn using AutoCad Architecture and/or Revit computer drafting programs. The computer drawings are provided to the Town for future fire safety applications. Since 2009, when it was established, the Service Learning project has been completed by 290 students for 84 buildings in eight different communities. The Town’s participation in the program started in 2015.

Supervisor Romaine said, “Our partnership with SUNY Farmingdale provides valuable, real-life experience that is beneficial to the students and the Town. I thank Chief Fire Marshal Chris Mehrman for his input on this project which will help to document and assess our own fire safety needs.”
