Assemblyman Ari Brown (R-Cedarhurst) presents an official Assembly Citation honoring 1st Fire Chief Thomas J. Foy for his service with the Lawrence-Cedarhurst Fire Department at the firehouse’s 140th Annual Installation Dinner. The fire department was established in the late 1800s and services the towns of Lawrence and Cedarhurst in Nassau County. With the help of more than 80 volunteer firefighters, the department continues to be a vital pillar to the Long Island community.
“Volunteer firefighters are the backbone of public safety not only to Cedarhurst but to small towns throughout New York state.” Said Brown, “Thank you to Chief Foy for the countless hours he has invested in the care and safety of our neighbors. He is undoubtedly deserving of this promotion. I’m confident under his leadership the department will continue to thrive.”
