On December 4, the Suffolk County Legislature, led by Legislator Jay Schneiderman, honored the Sag Harbor Volunteer Ambulance Corp. for their efforts following Hurricane Sandy.
Following the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, the Sag Harbor Volunteer Ambulance Corp. wasted no time in assisting the Broad Channel Fire Department of Queens, New York, who had lost its entire fleet due to flooding. The department filled a retired 2002 ambulance with donations from local residents organized by Sag Harbor Village Police Chief Tom Fabiano, including clothing, food and toiletries and a check in the amount of $1,200 and brought it to Broad Channel, a thin island that connects Far Rockaway to Queens. The corp. not only delivered the goods, but also the retired ambulance, which they gifted to the department.
“The Sag Harbor Volunteer Ambulance Corp. and their members are truly shining examples of what amazing things can be done when a community comes together to help each other in a time of need,” stated Legislator Schneiderman.
