By now you should have known that Firefighter Philip Scarfi risked his safety by crossing six lanes of traffic on the (LIE) Long Island Expressway to get to Officer Baribault in his damaged Chevrolet Impala cruiser.
He may not consider himself a hero or was only doing the right thing sixteen Sundays ago but in New Yorkers eyes, Scarfi is a true hero.
Last night, Nassau police honored Scarfi along with Captain Vincent LoRusso who was named “Police Officer of The Month” back in December 2007 by TSLI. Capt. LoRusso received the honorary title when he came to the aid of a woman (while off duty and driving with his family) whose vehicle met in a two-car collision and was caught on fire near Stewart Avenue.
