In May, Newsday published a list of more than 1,400 firefighters and emergency medical technicians who helped battle April’s massive brush fires in Manorville and Ridge. The tribute to their efforts was made possible by the 52 departments that responded to a Newsday request for the names of their members who fought those fires.
Today, we publish a second list of firefighters provided by an additional 13 departments and agencies whose members were part of that firefighting effort, and recognize their service. All names and spellings were provided by the departments.
