SHIRLEY, NY - On September 28th at about 5:45 P.M., the Brookhaven FD was activated for a helicopter landing at their station 1 on Camp Upton Road. Mastic Ambulance advised Medcom that they had a patient who had a seizure and a possible stroke. The person was taken from Unique Fitness to the landing zone where they were met by Stony Brook Mobile Stroke Unit (MSU 1).
On arrival at the firehouse, Brookhaven FD Chief of Department DiPinto advised that ambulances and MSU1 were already there. The chief instructed fire police units to close the entrance to the fire station and directed Engine 9 to stand by on the back ramp for an inbound Medevac chopper from SCPD. SCPD helicopter 3 made its landing behind the firehouse and the flight medic consulted with crews from MSU1 and Mastic ambulance.
It was determined that the patient would be transported by ground to Stony Brook Hospital VIA MSU1. All FD units were released upon take off of the helicopter back to base. No further information was available.
