Mastic NY- On Saturday April 11th members of the Mastic FD under the direction of Chiefs Rudy Sunderman Jr and Gene Martucci brought some Easter cheer to the children and Families in their district. With an Escort from Lieutenant Rudy Sunderman and the Fire Police units they brought the Easter Bunny out into the community while observing social distancing.
The Easter Bunny was aboard the back of unit 5-12-3 along with 1 helper who assisted the bunny. They made runs through 3 big parking lots which allowed for people to spread out of stay in their cars they were Khols/stop and shop, Applebees and HomeDepot/King Kullen. Due to social distancing the bunny remained on the truck the entire time and photos with the bunny were not allowed. However she did wave while the trucks went by slowly and many of the over joyed little ones smiled and waved back.
