The irony is that eventually, and probably soon, someone will drive their car right into the sign while being pursued by the pole-eece.

Gilbert, I don't think there is anything lower than turning a good story like this into another Mastic bashing session. You are disgusting.

R.I.P. Kevin. You were a nice man and so incredibly brave.

I think that, while whipping on Mastic is common on these boards, and sometimes deserved (another story), "Gilbert" doesn't have the good sense to a) respect the dead and b)honor a real hero.
It's possible he either just has a real problem with respect or was just a product of bad parenting, probably both. A fairly typical loser.

Couldn't they honor him with a street sign in another town? I mean really.......they want to "honor" him right? Why not name a street in Wading River after him? That would be honorable.

Condolences to the family and thank you very much for your dedicated service.

My daughter had known Kevin for many years through the fire service and knew several others who perished that dreadful day. What a wonderful tribute to those who serve. My best thoughts are with the Smith family, FDNY and Mastic Fire Dept.

Before you disparage others you should probably brush up on your grammar and spelling.

Its funny you bring up Wading River. All this talk about Mastic having trailer parks. Wading River actually has trailer parks. Some of the biggest hicks I have ever met live in Wading River. Anyway god bless Kevin Smith. You are a true hero.

Although I didn't know Kevin Smith, this is a nice gesture to remember a fine man & firefighter who left us way too soon no thanks to these terrorist bastards. Sadly, it seems that people are becoming complacent. September 11,2001 is becoming a forgotten day. We must always remember Firefighter Kevin Smith & all the others that lost their lives in NYC, DC & Pennsylvania to these no good bastards. Kevin Smith, may God be at yours & your family's side forever.
