November has been declared Automated External Defibrillator Awareness Month in the Town of East Hampton.
As part of a campaign to raise awareness about the importance of A.E.D.s, which are used in cases of cardiac arrest, the East Hampton Healthcare Foundation has plans to spread the word about where the devices are located. Town Supervisor Larry Cantwell issued a proclamation during a town board work session on Tuesday.
The Amagansett Fire Department held its annual inspection dinner earlier this month at Devon Yacht Club in Amagansett to recognize outstanding and longtime members.
Three members were honored for having a combined 150 years of service between them. Carmine DiSunno, Joe Hren Jr., and David DiSunno each have 50 years in the fire department.
Amagansett Fire Chief Dwayne Denton and Judy Bennett, who each have served the department for 25 years, were also given an award.
Thanks to the rain on Saturday, the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons moved its annual dog walk to Sunday, but that didn't make it any less successful.
ARF Hamptons raised more than $60,000 at the 21st annual Stroll to the Sea dog walk, according to Jamie Berger, the group's director of marketing and communications. "It was one of our best," she said, adding that they are still tallying the number of entries in the two-mile walk from Mulford Farm on James Lane in East Hampton Village to Main Beach and back.
