East Northport, NY - On the morning of October 26, 2020 Suffolk County Police Officer Chris Ward and Commack Volunteer Ambulance Corps Advanced EMT James Garside and EMT Stephanie Lino responded to an East Northport home where they delivered a baby girl, Phoebe. For Hayley and Philip Piscitello, it was the first night they spent in their new home. Mom and daughter were transported to Huntington Hospital, which was one of the first calls for Commack's newly acquired PL Custom ambulance. Four weeks later, on the afternoon November 16th, the Commack Volunteer Ambulance Corps had the family reveal a stork decal on the ambulance to commemorate the event.
