CORAM, NY – Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker recently honored Coram Fire Department Commissioner Vandorn “Van” Johnson III as part of the Suffolk County Legislature Recognition Program for Firefighter and EMS Personnel. Each Legislator designated one outstanding firefighter or EMS personnel from his or her district to be recognized, and their names were read into the record of the October 2nd General Meeting of the Suffolk County Legislature.
Van Johnson has been a firefighter for over 50 years, in the communities of Hauppauge, Coram, and New York City.
