Congressman Pete King Attends Massapequa Fire Department Wetdown Ceremony

Last Saturday the Massapequa Fire Department held a dedication and wetdown ceremony for three new fire engines. I was proud to take part in this ceremony for these state of the art vehicles. The Massapequa Fire Department does a truly outstanding job and is admired and respected by the entire Massapequa community. I am especially proud that the Massapequa Fire Department has named me an Honorary Chief. As Co-Chairman of the Congressional Fire Caucus I strongly support the men and women of the fire service.


In another wave of police shootings, six police officers were shot last night in Pennsylvania and Florida. Both officers in the Florida shooting have died from their wounds. These latest shootings add to the upsurge in violence against the men and women in blue which has seen a 60% increase in gun murders of police officers in just the past 18 months.

These officers are the people who put their lives on the line for us every day. All too often they are maliciously attacked by liberal rags such as the New York Times and too many politically correct politicians. But these cops continue to do their job no matter what. They deserve the full support, gratitude and thanks of all good people. Blue Lives Do Matter!
