In support of local Fire, Rescue and Emergency Medical Services crews, Gershow Recycling donated three cars to the North Patchogue Fire Department for an extrication exercise they performed during their annual Fire Prevention Open House on October 16.
During the exercise, firefighters learned first-hand how to use the "Jaws of Life" and other firefighting tools on the vehicle in the event they needed to extricate a victim from the vehicle involved in a crash. The North Patchogue Fire Department expressed their gratitude for Gershow's donation.
