Joseph Luckman, Chief of the Elmont Fire Department.

PROVIDED

On Saturday, May 26th, the Mastic Beach Volunteer Ambulance Company placed into service their new ambulance unit 5-39-17, a 2017 4x4 Ford F-450 that was outfitted by Hendrickson. The unit was first delivered on February 26th, however there were still some minor modifications that needed to be done, including mounting a plaque on the side in memory of the department's founding chief, Linda Bullock.

From Explorer to Chief, Joseph Luckman Elected to Head Elmont FD Elmont, NY - Joseph Luckman, a 16-year veteran of the fire service, is currently serving his first term as Chief of the Elmont Fire Department. Born and raised in Elmont, Luckman has spent his entire life in the area, where he attended Clara H. Carlson Elementary and Sewanhaka High School. During high school, he spent four years with the Elmont Fire Department Explorer Post 709, a youth division of the fire department that encourages young adults to learn more about the fire service and perhaps become a firefighter or emergency medical technician. The Explorer program made a good impression on Luckman, who, when not volunteering as a firefighter, works at Nassau County Fire Communications, and is responsible for dispatching fire departments all across Nassau County. “It is very rewarding being a part of the fire service,” said Luckman, who is also involved in the department’s community outreach. In addition to keeping residents safe, the department has a fire prevention unit that goes into local schools and teaches students about fire safety. Conveying this knowledge also ensures the community will remain a safe haven for years to come. Prior to his election as Chief, Luckman served a total of five years as a company officer, three

JUMP TO FILE #052218115 as lieutenant and two as captain. He is involved with the training committee as well as the recruitment and fund drive committees. “After a fire or medical emergency, it is gratifying knowing that we do something good every time the radio goes off,” says Luckman. His favorite part, however, is the comradery shared between company members. “We keep each other on our toes, but we always have each other’s backs,” he commented. In terms of priorities for the department, Luckman’s focus is on moving forward and showing growth in membership. Overall community safety, fire training and ensuring his department members get home safe after each emergency are among the Chief’s top priorities. The local volunteer fire department is comprised of residents who deliver emergency response services to the community, receiving policy and financial guidance and support from the Board of Fire Commissioners. Under Luckman’s direction, the department will continue to be involved in and represent the Elmont community. - MELISSA WEIR

North Patchogue F.D. Dedicates New Quint in Memory of Fallen Navy Lt. Michael Murphy Patchogue, NY - Sunday, May 20th was a special day in the community of North Patchogue. The North Patchogue Fire Department recently took possession of new Quint ladder truck 5-17-2, and to commemorate the placing of the truck, a ceremony was held at the department's headquarters on Davidson Avenue. However, unlike most truck dedications, this one was particularly special. The truck was dedicated in memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, who was a graduate of Patchogue-Medford High School and a US Navy SEAL. He was awarded the Medal of Honor

JUMP TO FILE #052218102 for his actions after he was killed in Afghanistan. The new truck 5-17-2 bears a photo of Murphy, as well as flag graphics and a picture of the medal with the slogan “Murph The Protector”. Murphy was always dedicated to his community and protecting his country. To commemorate the commissioning of the new Quint, Murphy's father, Dan, while flanked by cadets from the US Navy Sea Cadets Michael Murphy Division, gave a quick

speech and thanked everyone in attendance. After the speeches were given by Mr. Murphy and the dignitaries in attendance, the unit was christened by Michael’s mother, Maureen, who broke the bottle of champagne on the front bumper. Fire officials stated that it took a couple of years to get the truck, however it's an honor to commemorate a man who served his country. The truck is anticipated to be fully ready to roll within the next month. - JOHN WALTHERS
