U.S. Coast Guard calls off search for four fishermen

Add another to the 600+ "saves" that the 106th Rescue Wing has accomplished, here in the U.S. and abroad. This is yet another example of the dedication and bravery of the 1000 men and women of the 106th. As a community we need to be aware of the mission they fulfill and their importance to the economy of Eastern Long Island. The unit, based at Gabreski Airport in Westhampton Beach, was threatened with relocation or closure in an analysis of military budgeting and deployment held in 2005. Our community is a safer and better place to live because of our friends and neighbors who give their time and risk their lives "That others may live".

Girl Scout Collecting Donations For Soldiers Stationed Overseas

Thank you to Emily and her fellow Girl Scouts and leaders. Their efforts produced 213 boxes of essentials (including Girl Scout Cookies) for shipment to the Officers and Airmen of the 106th Rescue Wing (ANG), our hometown heroes from Gabreski, who are currently deployed overseas. Emily turned the boxes over to the Friends of the 106th, a local organization dedicated to serving the community, the Wing members and their families, who will arrange for shipment to the deployed members. These girls did an amazing job and are a credit to our community." Mar 5, 11 4:15 PM

CPR Save Allows Sag Harbor Couple To Celebrate Wedding Anniversary

Quality CPR can be a lifesaver as illustrated by this event. It needs to begin as quickly as possible, be of high quality (ie good chest compressions to assist perfusion, especially in combination with assisted respirations and ALS interventions) and continuous except when administering shock via AED. Kudos to Mrs. Crawford, the SHPD and Sag Harbor Ambulance volunteers." May 25, 11 1:25 PM

Southampton Village Ambulance Barn Ready For Bids

The existing barn is inadequate for the needs of SVVA, hence inadequate for the needs of the community. The traffic conditions are far worse on Meeting House Lane than in the proposed new location. The sooner these plans become reality the better." Oct 13, 16 7:57 AM
