On January 24, 2021, the Medford Volunteer Ambulance Company mourned the loss of active Lifetime Member and ex-Chief Thomas Hannan. While battling COVID-19, Thomas succumbed to the virus.

Thomas was a member who was proud to serve his community for over 15 years, and held many positions within the organization. Thomas achieved the highest office and lead the department as Chief. Within the organization, he was not only a leader, but also a mentor and teacher to so many aspiring EMS providers. Thomas also served as a FDNY EMS Lieutenant, and happily retired after his many years of service.

Services were held at Maloney’s Funeral Home in Bohemia. Yaphank Ladder 10 assisted Medford Ladder 5 with flag detail outside the service.
