Memorial Day Ceremony 2018
Ex-Captain Timothy Juliano
Ex-Captain Timothy Juliano, of Engine Company 1, was recently awarded the Hauppauge Fire Department's Firefighter of the Year award for coming to the rescue of a neighbor who had stopped breathing, across the street from where he lives, on January 1st., 2017, and performed CPR and revived her as Hauppauge Fire Department personnel arrived on scene.
Firefighter Stephen Matteo
Firefighter Stephen Matteo, of Engine Company 4, was awarded the Hauppauge Fire Department's Medal of Valor award for coming to the aid of a motorist who had a medical emergency behind the wheel of his SUV, on Townline Road in July of 2017, and struck a tree causing the vehicle to burst into flames. FF Matteo was able to remove the victim from the drivers seat, with the help of passing motorists, before the vehicle was consumed by fire.
On July 19, 2017 at about 4:57 PM the Hauppauge Fire Department was alerted for a mutual aid, car fire / MVA with a trapped occupant in front of 839 Townline Road, just across from the HFD boundary with the Smithtown FD. Engines 3-8-1, 3-8-4 and 3-8-14 responded. Prior to the arrival of any apparatus or police, Firefighter Stephen Matteo Jr., a member of Company 4, was passing the scene and stopped to assist. With assistance from passing civilians, he was able to extricate the driver from the burning vehicle. Reports are that the driver may have suffered a medical emergency, causing him to leave the roadway and strike a tree. Units from the Smithtown Fire Department, who were handling multiple alarms in their District, also responded to the scene.
