Commack firefighters will hold their third annual Glen Ciano Blood Drive at the Commack Fire Department headquarters this Saturday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
The blood drive is dedicated to the memory of Suffolk County Police Officer. Ciano was a beloved husband and father of two who was killed in the line of duty on Feb. 22, 2009 after a drunken driver caused him to crash his patrol car into a utility pole on Commack Road.
The officer was a friend to many of Commack's volunteers, as his patrol car was based out of the fire department's headquarters.
Last year, the fire department collected 100 units of blood during the six-hour drive.
The drive will take place at Commack Fire Department Headquarters located at 6309 Jericho Tpke.
