“It is an honor to recognize these brave men and women of Rocky Point for their service,” said Legislator Anker. “Those honored have gone above and beyond to serve the community and I am truly grateful for their dedication.”

Scott Peterson, a volunteer EMT for Rocky Point, was named Suffolk County Firemen of the Year for the 6th Legislative District. The Suffolk County Legislature’s Recognition Program for Firefighter and EMS Personnel allows each Legislator to formally nominate one person in his or her district for their outstanding service to the community. Scott was nominated because of his quick and heroic actions. Recently, Scott was off duty and working at a local Home Depot when a patron became unconscious. Scott used CPR to resuscitate the patron and saved his life.
