Hicksville To Commemorate Two 9/11 Heroes

Written by Cory Twibell Friday, 07 September 2012 00:00

George Howard, Terry Farrell gave their lives at Ground Zero

Two local heroes, George Howard and Terry Farrell, who both held strong ties to the Hicksville community before their final hours on Sept. 11, 2001, will be honored this Sunday, Sept. 9 with a ceremony beginning at 11 a.m. at the Hicksville Fire Department’s Strong Street Fire Station Memorial.

Honorary Chief George Howard was an ex-captain of Emergency Company 5 and a member of the Port Authority Police Department working out of JFK Airport, where he organized the PAPD Emergency Service Unit. During the attack on the Twin Towers in 1993, Howard responded to the scene on his day off and rappelled down an elevator shaft to rescue more than 60 occupants trapped in an elevator – an effort that awarded him a subsequent Medal of Valor. In addition to his volunteer firefighter service, which spanned nearly three decades, Howard was a youth soccer coach in Hicksville. West John Street between Newbridge Road and Strong Street now reads, “P.O. George Howard Way.”

New Training Facilities Constructed At NCFSA

Friday, 24 August 2012 00:00

Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano was joined by dozens of volunteer firefighters as he furthered his commitment to supporting first responders by breaking ground for the construction of new training facilities, known as Burn Buildings, at the Nassau County Fire Service Academy (NCFSA) in Bethpage on Aug. 20. Half of the current training facilities became unsafe and were closed several years ago after being used for nearly five decades to train first responders on the safety measures needed when fighting structural fires.

“The men and women of Nassau’s volunteer fire departments deliver critical services to every resident and it’s essential that we provide them with proper training facilities so they are prepared when risking their lives to help our neighbors in need of assistance,” Mangano said. “The new facilities will offer our first responders critical hands-on training for both novice and experienced firefighters.”
