Followup: Harwich supplies arrive in NYC
HARWICH - Harwich Fire Fighters delivered a trailer full of supplies to the FDNY (Fire Department of New York) Center for Terrorism and Disaster Planning. The delivery including items ranging from blankets, duraflame logs, toiletries, tools, work gloves, food and much more.
The Harwich Firefighters were met by both active and retired FDNY firefighters to help unload the trailer, and within two hours of unloading the supplies were being dropped off to those in need.
The Cape Cod Community was amazing with their support of this effort. The amount of items that were donated, from a van by Richard Waystack (a local realtor) to a pallet of construction garbage bags by Mid Cape Center. And just
about everything in between.
Many other Cape Fire Departments (Dennis Fire, Hyannis, Brewster, Chatham, Eastham) contributed directly to this effort, while others collected items on their own. This was an event everyone on Cape Cod can and should be proud
of, and Harwich Fire thanks all those that contributed.
Making the trip from Harwich were Harwich Lieutenants Mike Mason and Craig Thornton, Firefighters Scott Tyldesley and Jay Boyne, and Fire Captain Dave LeBlanc and his daughter Madison.
