Many trees fell in Levittown; rescue workers worked quickly to remove as much as possible. Levittown volunteers responded to 34 power line related incidents, five automatic fire alarms caused by power loss or surges, three EMS calls, seven false alarms from carbon monoxide detectors (a chronic problem even without a storm) and three fires of a minor nature. In addition to the alarms, firefighters assisted in clearing trees from the local streets. Photo by Kevin Imm.

On Tuesday, May 31 the members of the Wantagh Levittown Volunteer Ambulance Corp (WLVAC) who were wrapping up an overnight shift at the station house on Balsam Lane received a 911 call for something they had only responded to possibly once before. It was a woman in labor, at her home, a home located directly adjacent from the station.
The Borisuck family, Diana and her husband Daniel with their four young children, had just moved to Levittown from Queens less than one day earlier. All of the excitement from the move to a new house put Diana right into labor with her fifth child the following morning.

It is with deep regret that the Chief’s Office, the Board of Fire Commissioners, the officers and members of Engine Company 2 and Levittown Fire Department announce the passing of ex-chief and Charter Member Daniel T. Seip Sr.
Seip, born in Roslyn in 1920, was a 60-year member of the Levittown Fire Department. From 1944 through 1946, Seip served in the United States Naval Reserve in defense of his country. Following the war, Seip and his family moved to Levittown where he worked at Grumman Aircraft Manufacturing in Bethpage as a tool and die maker.
On Wednesday, Aug. 10, up to 40 protestors from MoveOn.org gathered by Rep. Peter King’s office in Massapequa to protest his recent support for legislation that raised the nation’s debt ceiling.
“We have a simple message: we need jobs, not budget cuts,” said Bob McKee, a local MoveOn.org member. “We’re here today to say ‘enough is enough’ and demand that Representative King stop his assault on the American Dream. It is far past time that Washington end the tax giveaways to corporations and the wealthy and use that money to revitalize our community and create good jobs that we so desperately need.”
