Re: Where were you when...

During the first 48 hours after the incident we were stationed at JFK 
Airport and at Floyd Bennet Field with 4 aircraft (aircraft owned by 
Suffolk County Police, staffed by Stony Brook University Hospital).  
Since that time we have had 1 aircraft 24 hours per day in the city.  
No Medevacs but many police missions, searches, ferrying of equipment 
and emergency service personnel.
