CFD Adopt a Roadway - Frankie's Road
By web team
May 1, 2022

With the spring season in full swing, members of CFD spent part of their Saturday giving back to our community in memory of a friend and fellow Firefighter.

in late 2017 CFD adopted a section of roadway in memory of Firefighter Frank McBride as part of the Suffolk County Adopt a Road program.

Frank passed away suddenly in March of 2016 following a traffic accident and was known for generosity, dedication to helping others and his ability to make others laugh and smile.

Periodically throughout the year a contingent of CFD Firefighters will get together to pick up litter along the roadway and keep the area clean in his name.

The 1 mile stretch of roadway along County Route 48 covers from Cox lane to Horseshoe Drive and passes by a part of the McBride family farm and the Southold Town Recycling center, Frank's place of employment for several years.

The stretch is marked by signs placed there by Suffolk County DPW in Frankie's memory.

Thank you to all of Frank's fellow friends and firefighters who continue take part in this program.
