In support of local fire departments and the Huntington community, Gershow Recycling hosted a multi-departmental rescue training exercise at its facility in Huntington Station on May 2. Gershow provided the bus and the vehicles and also prepared the accident scene for the rescuers. The drill was coordinated by Assistant Chief Robert Berry of the Huntington Fire Department.

 

Approximately 125-150 volunteer firefighters and first responders from fire departments, ambulance corps, the Huntington Community First Aid Squad, Commack Ambulance Corps, Suffolk County Police Aviation and Huntington Hospital participated in an exercise in which they had to extricate and treat "victims" that were hurt in a "crash" involving a large-passenger public transportation vehicle and two passenger vehicles. After the exercise ended, the vehicle was shredded and recycled.
