My husband is a volunteer firefighter in Bellmore. He spent
36 hours straight during hurricane Sandy responding to calls. These
firefighters gave their time rescuing others out of their homes and fighting
fires during the storm while risking their own lives doing it. He was then sub
contracted along with other members of the fire department by LIPA to do the
electric inspections to get power restored sooner to those affected by the
hurricane. None of these firefighters have yet to get paid by LIPA. LIPA has
been contacted many times in regards to payment. LIPA's response and lack of
preparedness during the storm was abominable. These firefighters, many
with damage to their own homes (including ours) went to work with LIPA to
expedite getting electricity back to their neighborhood so people would have the
ability to start the repairs and heat their homes. I just have to say
SHAME on LIPA. They have no problem taking my last 3 months payments, but
have yet to pay these people who were sub contracted out by them.
