MIDDLE ISLAND, NY – On Saturday, July 24th, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker attended the Middle Island Fire Department’s 73rd Annual Fire District Inspection and Installation Dinner at the newly constructed Middle Island Firehouse. Legislator Anker joined other elected officials in honoring the newly installed incoming officers as well as others for their achievements, including Michael Golden, EMT of the Year and High Point Award recipient; Erik Kahl, Fire Fighter of the Year; David Pfister, Firefighter Probie of the Year; Harjinder Singh, EMS Member of the Year and High Point Award recipient; Vicki Volpe, High Point Award recipient, Walter Olszewski, High Point Award recipient: and Jaime Dickinson, in grateful appreciation of his service as the Fire District Mechanic. In addition, this year’s Anthony Catania Award was presented to Marcel Rosenfeld, who also was a High Point Award recipient.

It is always a pleasure to honor our firefighters and first responders at the annual inspection and installation dinner, said Legislator Anker. This year, in addition to their usual selfless service, Firefighters, EMT and EMS members were asked to also work on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. I thank every member of the department for their continued and courageous service to our community that kept our residents safe from emergency situations throughout an unprecedented year.

I would like to personally thank each and every member of the Middle Island Fire Department for selflessly serving our community throughout one of the most difficult times, said Chief of Department Matthew Gropper. The volunteer emergency services here in Suffolk County were stretched to its limits during this pandemic and everyone involved should be proud of what we accomplished.

The Middle Island Fire Department headquarters is located at 31 Arnold Drive in Middle Island. For more information, please call the department at their main phone number, (631) 924-3116.
