This summer the Centereach Fire Department competed in a wing eating contest, hosted by Stop & Shop in Ronkonkoma. Centereach Fire Department members Matt Gehm and Ed Davidson ate their way to a victory and received a check for $1,000. This check was presented to the Lt. Joseph P. DiBernardo Memorial Foundation on September 21, 2020. On hand to present the check to FDNY Deputy Chief (retired) Joe Dibernardo was Centereach Assistant Chief Joseph Feola, Firefighter Matt Gehm, and Firefighter Ed Davidson. Congratulations to Matt and Ed and thank you to Centereach Fire Department for your generous donation!
