SHIRLEY, NY - At approximately 5:03 P.M. on Tuesday, March 16th, the Mastic Beach FD and Mastic Beach Vol. Ambulance Co. were activated for a reported MVA involving a motorcycle at the intersection of Havenwood Drive East and Neighborhood Road.

The first chief on the road, 1st Assistant Chief Jeff McGown, arrived on the scene and confirmed a car versus motorcycle. He advised the first incoming unit (Rescue 5-13-4) to bring their crew up with brooms, shovels and speedy dry, and to help EMS get the patient on the stretcher and into the ambulance.

The second arriving truck (Unit 5-13-8) was advised by command to block the road off while crews went to work with fire police. The Mastic Beach Ambulance Co. asked Med-Com to 24 Mastic Volunteer Ambulance Co. for one additional ambulance to the scene for another patient. Both ambulances transported the two injured people to Long Island Community Hospital. The condition of the motorcyclist was unknown.

All units were back in service 30 minutes after being activated. The scene was handed over to the Suffolk County 7th Precinct for investigation.
