In April of this year, a small plane crashed after taking off from the Bayport Aerodrome. Several Bayport Firefighters that lived near the crash site rushed to the scene and pulled both the pilot and passenger from the fiery wreckage and airlifted to Stony Brook University Hospital with serious injuries.
This past Friday (Sept 2. 2016), at the Bayport FD’s regular monthly meeting, Pilot Scott Clifford and passenger Michael Rome attended the meeting and met with the BFD membership to personally thank them. Additionally, New York State Senators Tom Croci and Phil Boyle also attended and presented recognition awards to several firefighters and civilians that were participated in the extrication of the occupants.
