(Moriches, NY) Suffolk County Correction Officers teaching the GREAT Program at William Floyd Middle School were first on the scene of a school bus fire at dismissal on Wednesday. C/O Christopher Delaney and C/O Brian Arce were at the school teaching the Gang Resistance Education and Training (G.R.E.A.T.) Program when the bus caught fire before students were dismissed. They secured the scene and directed traffic as more buses and parents arrived to pick up students at the end of the day. As the bus became fully engulfed in flames, Suffolk County Police Officers and the Center Moriches Fire Department responded to put out the fire. No students, staff, or first responders were injured.
