Hats off to RVCFD
To the Editor:
The hard work and tireless preparation of Rockville Centre’s first responders is undeniable. And now it’s known statewide. The RVC Fire Department took home second place for the Best Appearing Fire Department in New York state at the statewide fire department parade on Aug. 18.
But even more impressive, 10 former chiefs of the department marched proudly in their uniforms! It’s no secret that our community’s first responders are top-rate; I’m glad they were able to represent our area proudly.
Chief John Thorp, 1st Assistant Chief Robert Seaman, 2nd Assistant Chief Brian Cook, departmental officers in and the RVCFD’s volunteer members should be proud of their accomplishments. I know that all Rockville Centre residents rest easier at night knowing that these first responders are well-trained and prepared to handle any emergency that may occur.
Again, congratulations to the RVC Fire Department on this special and justified recognition. You do all of Rockville Centre proud.
