(HICKSVILLE, N.Y.) - Nassau County Legislator Arnold W. Drucker (D - Plainview) joined his Legislature colleagues on Monday, Nov. 23 in congratulating Hicksville Fire Department Lieutenant Andrew Niemczyk and Captain Chris Moskos Jr. for their life-saving response to a recent house fire.
On Monday, Sept. 28, Lieutenant Niemczyk and Captain Moskos rushed to the scene of an early-morning house fire on Sutherland Road in Hicksville. Once on scene, they swiftly located and rescued a 90-year-old resident who had collapsed in her kitchen. Thanks to their rapid response and assistance from a neighbor who alerted authorities, the resident was rushed to Nassau University Medical Center for treatment and is on the road to recovery. Fire operations were under the command of Chief of Department Gary Lewis.
“The bravery and dedication that you exemplify each and every day is so encouraging and inspiring,” Legislator Drucker said on the floor of the Legislature. “We owe a debt of gratitude to you that we could never repay, but we can show our support for you and acknowledge you every chance we get. We are grateful and thankful and wish you the best.”
