A 19-year-old Glen Cove EMT died Monday after suffering an "unspecified medical emergency" shortly after a volunteer shift, according to the Nassau County fire marshal.
Officials have classified her death as "in the line of duty," and said her death was not suspicious.
The EMT has been identified as Susan Giovanniello. Her family tells News 12 she was a second-year student at Hofstra University and recently began a job at CVS Pharmacy.
Giovanniello had been volunteering with Glen Cove volunteer EMS since her junior year of high school and was part of the New York Explorers program.
A visitation will be held Wednesday at Dodge Thomas Funeral Home in Glen Cove. A funeral Mass is set for Thursday at St. Rocco's Church in Glen Cove.
The fire marshal said expect for fire apparatus in the area as ceremonial activities will be taking place that could delay traffic.
Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman released a statement saying "EMT Susan Giovanniello of the Glen Cove EMS Corps, proudly served residents with distinction, putting the safety, health and well-being of others before her own. The City of Glen Cove and the County of Nassau is better because of her service. At my direction, all flags at Nassau County Buildings will be flown at half-staff in her honor."
