On Monday December 28th, the members of CFD received a donation of personal protective equipment (PPE) from the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund.
The fund is named in memory of Terry Farrell who was a father, a husband, a brother, and a dedicated firefighter who lost his life on September 11, 2001, during the World Trade Center attack. Among the 343 heroes who died that day, he was in Tower Two when it collapsed.
A decorated member of Rescue 4/FDNY and Chief of the Dix Hills Volunteer Fire Department, Terry was a devoted firefighter who embodied the spirit of courage and giving.
The Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund was established in his memory to assist firefighters and families across the nation with financial, educational and medical support, and to provide equipment donations for fire departments in need. The fund also distributes donated surplus equipment to help them do their jobs more safely and effectively.
The Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund is made of up firefighters and family members who volunteer their time and energy to help fellow brothers, sisters and departments in need
The Terry fund generously donated a large assortment of personal protection equipment and needed supplies to both CFD and the Riverhead Volunteer Ambulance to be used by our First Responders during Covid-19 responses.
The Chiefs, Officers, and Members of the Cutchogue Fire Department would like to express our sincere gratitude to Terry Farrell Fund and everyone who continues to help us to help you during this trying time.
Thank you for your continued caring, generosity and support for Firefighters across the nation.
