Town of Babylon Supervisor Rich Schaffer, Deputy Supervisor Tony Martinez and the rest of the Town Board recently visited 11th Street in West Babylon, which is now ceremoniously known as “Paramedic Tina Nee Memorial Way,” between 13th and 14th Avenues.

Nee, a resident of West Babylon for over 40 years, passed away in 2017. She served the West Babylon community as a paramedic for the West Babylon Fire Department for 27 years, was a captain of the Rescue Team and the first female officer in the department.

Supervisor Schaffer thanked her husband Kenneth and children Sharon Drake, Robert and Kevin for the years of service their mother provided the community. Nee is also survived by a son, Christopher.
