I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the Williston Park Fire Department Rescue Squad for their prompt and efficient service a few weeks back.
I apparently ate a kernel of corn while eating dinner. My Papop called for an ambulance, as my mommy and Nanon were very nervous.
The men arrived within minutes, checked me out, calmed my mommy and then took me to Winthrop Hospital.
The next three days were quite harrowing with me ending up in the operating room at Schneider Children’s Hospital. Although I missed my sister’s Baptism at St. Aidan’s it worked out all right.
My entire family cannot say enough of the service provided by the members of the Williston Park Fire Department Rescue Squad. A number of the members showed up and we are not sure of all those who were there that evening. All were helpful and so concerned for me and my family. I thank you all.
