Legislator Anker Honors Miller Place Fire Department EMT

MILLER PLACE, NY – Suffolk County Legislator Anker recently attended a meeting of the Miller Place Fire Department at the Miller Place Fire House to honor Courtney O’Connor, a volunteer Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), for providing medical assistance during a summer community concert while she was off-duty.

It is my honor to recognize and thank Courtney for the assistance she provided at the recent community concert, said Legislator Anker. I was impressed by her medical knowledge, quick reaction time, professionalism, and compassion as she helped a resident experiencing a medical emergency. In addition, Courtney provided comfort to the resident’s small children reminding them that everything was going to be okay. I am grateful for the services of the Miller Place Fire Department’s EMT and volunteer firefighter members like Courtney, who volunteer their time to ensure the health and safety of our community.

Last month, while Courtney O’Connor was attending a summer community concert at Heritage Park in Mount Sinai, a resident experienced a medical emergency. Although Courtney was not on duty, she sprang into action as the first responder on the scene and provided medical assistance. Courtney O’Connor is a recent Miller Place High School graduate and has been a volunteer member of the Miller Place Fire Department for a year. For more information, please contact Legislator Anker’s office at (631) 854-1600.
