The members of the Islip Fire Department have selflessly come to the aid of the Islip community time and time again, no matter what day or time. Now the tables have turned and WE are asking for YOUR help! On December 19th, Firefighter Robert Wiedmann, a volunteer firefighter with the Islip Fire Department, was seriously injured fighting a fire in Crown Heights Brooklyn working for FDNY Rescue Company 2. Rob suffered serious burns on over 50% of his body and is in the Cornell University Burn Unit. Over the next several months, Rob will be in the hospital undergoing multiple skin graft operations, and faces a long period of rehab and recovery for many months to follow. With these surgeries, Rob will be in need of multiple units of blood. Anyone with an O- blood type is urged to help out and donate. If you are not type O-, you can still donate under Rob's name and they will credit him for a unit of his blood type as well. To donate, call 1-800-439-6876 for an appointment and tell them it is for Robert Wiedmann, Patient #203859, file #71614. Rob has given so much to the Islip Community, so please help us return the favor for a man who sustained serious injuries while selflessly protecting the people he has so many times put his life on the line for. You can also help by donating any monetary amount possible to the FDNY Rescue 2 Mayday Fund at www.fdnyrescue2.org . The Islip Fire Department and the Weidmann family thank you in advance for your support during this time of need!

 

 

If this is any problems with the mods here I apologize.
