Mayor Dorman Honors Two Central Islip Firefighters for Their Heroism

During the Village Board meeting on February 6, Allan M. Dorman, Mayor, Village of Islandia, honored two Central Islip firefighters for their heroism in responding to a call last summer.

 

On June 22, 2023, at approximately 3 p.m., the Central Islip Fire Department was dispatched to a residence at Sagebrush Lane. Vincent Plotino and James McMullen arrived at the scene, where an occupant was apparently choking. After first responders tried the Heimlich maneuver, Plotino placed the occupant on the floor while McMullen performed rescue breathing, to no avail. McMullen then retrieved a portable resuscitator from his vehicle and placed it over the occupant. Soon, the object became dislodged and they were able to breathe on their own. 

 

Mayor Dorman praised Plotino and McMullen for their quick thinking and noted how their training and initiative helped save this person’s life.

Received Transfer of Ownership of These Homes, Courtesy of the Village of Islandia and Creation Equity

On December 20, the Village of Islandia and Creation Equity transferred the keys and deeds to three female war veterans — Melissa Pandolf, Sabrina Lacy and Catherine Doherty — and their families at a special ceremony that took place at the Col.

“These veterans served our country and I’m pleased that we were able to work with Creation Equity to thank them for their service and have a positive impact on their lives,” Allan M. Dorman, Mayor, Village of Islandia, said. “We would like to thank Creation Equity for their assistance in providing these veterans a home, just in time for Christmas.”
