Halesite Swears In 8 New Members

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

The Halesite Fire Department is pleased to announce that eight local residents joined its organization tonight. The new members are:

Carolyn Corkett
Brad Gaito
Jessica Kitzen
Steve Lapp
Stephen Medici
Lucy Oppenheim
Jason Oppenheim
Sarah Smith

These eight new members answered Halesite's call for volunteers during its membership drive earlier this summer. They join Eldon Smith, a new member sworn in last month, and five others still in the application process, in creating one of the largest new member classes Halesite has seen in years.

The members were sworn in by Larry Northcote, Chairman of the Board of Fire Commissioners. They were congratulated by the rest of the Board, District Secretary/Treasurer, Bonnie Sammis, and Halesite's Chief, Andy Magerle. After the swearing in ceremony, the new members participated in an orientation that involved the issuance of new pagers, firefighting gear, and a review of Halesite's basic procedures.

Halesite's new class of Probationary members will go through rigorous training. Those electing to be firefighters will complete formal training given by the Suffolk County Fire Academy. Rescue-only members will complete the County EMT course. All members will attend in-house training that will eventually qualify them to respond to Halesite's emergency needs.

Pictured above are Halesite's new members following the swearing-in ceremony. From left to right they are Lucy Oppenheim, Jessica Kitzen, Jason Oppenheim, Carolyn Corkett, Stephen Medici, Steve Lapp, Brad Gaito and Sarah Smith.
