Syska, who lives in Birmingham Township, said that while in high school, some of his friends were affiliated with Longwood and he believed he could be of assistance. “I went to Penn State for information technology, but I discovered what I liked was the fire company and being an EMT. I then took nursing classes,” Syska said.

He has been involved in water rescues during the most recent flooding in the area and has also taken part in multiple vehicle rescues. “I’ve had good experiences here and I like to give back to the community through service with Longwood,” Syska said.
