Elmont Firefighter Commended by New York State Legislators
 
 
On Sunday February 12, Elmont Fire Department Lt. Jeffrey Dupoux of Truck Co.#2 was honored for a rescue he made on the Long Island Expressway in Suffolk County on February 1.

At approximately 10: 30 AM, while in a private vehicle, Lt. Dupoux observed a collision between an SUV and a National Grid truck causing the SUV to overturn. He, along with off-duty Suffolk County Police Officer Thomas Mutarelli, stopped to lend assistance. They observed that the female operator of the SUV was trapped in the vehicle and that a fire had started in the engine compartment. Lt. Dupoux and Officer Mutarelli worked together to get the women free from the vehicle moments before it became fully involved in fire.

State Senator Todd Kaminsky awarded Lt. Dupoux the State Senate Liberty Medal, while Assemblywoman Michaelle Solages presented an Assembly proclamation recognizing the act of bravery.
