Peabody firefighter helps where help is needed

The phrase “off-duty” doesn’t matter when you are a firefighter. The mission is still the same: While everyone else is running away from an emergency. you run towards it.

Such was the case recently with Peabody firefighter David Limongiello, who  wanted to do something for New Yorkers hit by Hurricane Sandy. So, going beyond the call of duty, and volunterring his own time, Limongiello loaded his 20-foot trailer with 3,000 pounds of donated supplies and headed off to help people of the devastated region.

And in a nice, heartwarming twist, turns out that Limongiello ran into firefighters in the New York metro area, who had earlier come to Peabody to pay their respects at the funeral of firefighter Jim Rice last December.

It’s a very nice story, which you can read here in the Salem News.
