On Sunday, April 21, Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano honored firefighters from across Nassau County at the Firematic Awards Ceremony. Rich Smyth, our Vice President of Corporate Real Estate, attended the ceremony on behalf of JetBlue to thank these first responders for all of their hard work following Hurricane Sandy. We also provided the 50 honorees each with a travel certificate to show our appreciation.
Honorees included brave first responders who have gone above and beyond the call of duty and consistently risked their own lives to protect Nassau County residents as well as members who have served Nassau County for more than 50 years. From saving fellow firefighters to evacuating neighborhoods during Hurricane Sandy, many of the honorees have demonstrated true courage and heroism that is truly deserving of recognition.
