As an Emergency Medical Service volunteer, it is emotionally difficult to encounter serious motor vehicle accidents. It is so much worse when you become the patient yourself. On July 6th, 2012 Ronnie and Alyssa Rowe , two longtime dedicated Riverhead Ambulance Volunteers, became just that...patients in a very serious car accident.
Alyssa at just 22 years old has served the department as a Top Responder and is currently a Lieutenant for the organization. She has selflessly organized fundraisers over the past few years and has raised thousands of dollars for the benefit of others.
Her Father Ronnie has been an active member for over 20 years, serving the department in various positions such Chief and President. He currently sits on the Board of Directors. As well as volunteering his time to the community of Riverhead, he also has instructed numerous students in Suffolk County helping them achieve their New York State Emergency Medical Techician Certification.
While Alyssa will recover quickly from her injuries, Ronnie has a long road to recovery. His friends are hosting this donation page to help defray any expenses his family might incur during this difficult time.
We would appreciate any donations that could be made. Thank you in advance. Let's "Rally for Ronnie"!!!
