Suffolk Legislator Tom Donnelly (D-Huntington Station) recently joined members, families and friends of the Huntington Manor Fire Department to recognize Captain Lou Agiesta for a remarkable 50 years of volunteer service.


In a ceremony held at the Huntington Manor Fire Department headquarters in Huntington Station on Monday, Jan. 15th, Legislator Donnelly presented Captain Agiesta, a Huntington Station resident, with a County Proclamation highlighting his outstanding record and accomplishments.


A tireless volunteer, Captain Agiesta joined the Huntington Manor Fire Department in January 1968 and worked his way up the ranks to hold a multitude of leadership positions, including: 1st Lieutenant Hose Company #1 (1979-1981); 1st Captain Hose Company #1 (1981-1983); 3rd Assistant Chief (1984-1985); 2nd Assistant Chief (1986-1987); 1st Assistant Chief (1988-1989) and Chief of Department (1990-1991).  He also served as President of the TOHCC (1990-1991) and was a member of the Town Fire Advisory Board (1990-1991).  In addition, Captain Agiesta served as Fire Police Lieutenant (2008-2009), Fire Police Captain (2010-2011) and as co-chairman of the Kids Christmas party and an advisor to the Huntington Manor Juniors.


“For more than half a century, Captain Agiesta has continuously displayed remarkable bravery and a commitment to the community that is beyond compare,” said Legislator Donnelly.  “As a retired member of the FDNY and a current volunteer firefighter myself, I know first-hand that is a testament to both his dedication to our community and the support of his family. It was an honor to recognize and thank him for his many years of exceptional service.”
