Earlier this year, the Riverhead Town Board voted to name a section of road in downtown’s riverfront parking lot after Heidi Behr, a Riverhead ambulance volunteer who died in an ambulance crash in May 2005 while responding to a call.

Board members also agreed to name the Riverhead Volunteer Ambulance headquarters after Ms. Behr, who was one of two emergency medical technicians who died in the 2005 crash. The other, Bill Stone of Ridge, was a paid EMT. But members of the ambulance board said last week that after speaking with the families of both Ms. Behr and Mr. Stone, they believe both should be honored.

“The ambulance corps is very insistent it be named for Bill and Heidi, not just Heidi,” board president Bruce Talmage told the Town Board last Thursday.

“I have no problem with that,” Supervisor Sean Walter responded. The proposal was met with no opposition from Town Board members.

The ambulance board suggested putting the name on an electronic sign with a rolling message board, although Town Board members said those are not permitted by the town’s sign code. Town officials agreed to let the ambulance board come up with the language and design for the sign and to bring it back at a future meeting for discussion.
