Three new volunteers were welcomed the Riverhead Volunteer Ambulance Corps at its general meeting Thursday night. Chief Joseph Oliver swore in Mai Hennessey, Kristen Murphy and Jake Phillips at the event.

Ms. Hennessey and Ms. Murphy are both EMTs and come from out of town, while Mr. Phillips lives in Riverhead, said assistant chief Lisa Corwin.

The three members joined the department in January and just recently started their new member training by going on calls with active Riverhead ambulance members.

Last month, RVAC swore in the corps’ officers for 2014. In addition, new members Martin McKenna and RJ Hartmann — an EMT — were both sworn in as new members. Mr. McKenna, a Calverton resident, and Mr. Hartmann, a Manorville resident, have both been training since last month and are starting to ride on the ambulance as new trainees.
