At 7 p.m. on Tuesday, October 16, members of the Stamford Fire & Rescue Department will be honored for their acts of courage and bravery this past summer when a Sea Ray cruiser flipped and left several people stranded and in danger. The awards will be presented at the Regular Legislative Meeting of City Council in the Council Chambers, City Hall, 515 North Avenue in New Rochelle, NY.

The accident occurred on July 22nd in the late evening when a boat hit one of the break walls in Stamford Harbor. The boat flipped leaving the boat’s driver dead, two passengers hanging onto the hull and another two trapped underwater in the boat’s cabin. Several divers in Engine 5 and Rescue 1 worked to free the two trapped people in the cabin by leading them through debris and an 18-inch wide hole in the cabin.

Among Those Being Honored Include:

· Captain Donald Mitchell and Deputy Chief Trevor Roach who coordinated the operation

· The Crew of Rescue 1 including Captain Donald E. Mitchell, Fire Fighter Joseph Maida, Fire Fighter John R. Lockwood, and Fire Fighter Michael A. Allegrini

· The Crew of Engine 5 including Fire Fighter Jamie R. DeFelice, Acting Fire Lieutenant Thomas Gibbons, Fire Fighter William J. O’Connell and Fire Fighter Daniel Hickman

Also being honored are the Stamford Police Department, the Oyster Bay Police Department, the Greenwich Police Department, the Greenwich Dive Team, the SoundBeach Dive team, a Darien boat and diver, and the US Coast Guard for their assistance on the scene.
