Engine Company Four
Lieutenant Tursi has been a member of the Garden City Park Department since September of 2011 and has been an active member of Engine Company 4. Previously serving as the Company Secretary for the years of 2013 and 2014, Tursi has always held his chin high in aspiration to become an Engine Company Officer. Tursi has been a member of the Combined Racing Drill Team with The New Hyde Park Fire Department Termites from 2012 to Present, advancing himself to numerous highly appointed positions on the team. He takes an active role in the training of new members to the department and getting involved in numerous Department and Company committees; including his previous active role in 2014 as the Chairman of Club34 for the Denton Avenue Station House to make changes and new improvements to benefit his fellow members. He lives his life by one quote, " The Body Can Take Damn-near Anything, It's The Mind That Needs Training" (-Petty Officer First Class Marcus Luttrell). Tursi has said that he feels very confidant when it comes to leading the men on the scene of a call from the numerous training drills and classes he has attended in his years in the Fire Service, however he will always continue to attend because there are always new things to learn, skills to perfect, and lessons to pass on to others.
