Hicksville Fire Department Fundraiser for The Azzue Family

Created November 26th, 2022

The officers and members of hook and ladder company 6 of the Hicksville Fire Department along with close friends are setting up this fundraiser to assist one of our own who lost not only their home but their beloved animals (1 dog and 6 cats).

On November 25th, a tragedy hit a first responders home. As the family was out the day after Thanksgiving (Black Friday), the family members got phone calls saying their home was on fire. Hicksville Fire Department rushed to the scene and Captain Chris Moskos of company 8, tried to immediately gain entry suspecting that someone was home. Once announced over the radio that no one was home, they knew he had to get their beloved animals out. Matrix (the family dog-pictured below) was found and was immediately rushed to the animal hospital. Unfortunately due to the smoke inhalation, his life was lost. All 6 cats(Anna, Harley, boots, tigger, Oliver and Loki) were found but unfortunately were gone due to smoke inhalation. 

The Azzue family now needs the support of their fellow first responders as well as the community for every day use items, food and clothing.

As we are in the middle of the holiday season, we understand it is a tough time for all but please share and donate anything possible. A little goes a long way! 

Please know that the Azzue family reads all your posts/comments! They are overwhelmed and extremely thankful for your kind words and donations.

The Azzue family will never be able to express the gratitude for every single person who has reached out and donated to them. They wish they could thank every single person who has donated, but they are reading the kind works and prayers everyone has been leaving everyday. The next step for the azzue family is finding a rental home in hopes to get out of the hotel soon.
