Gershow Donates 12 Vehicles to 2013 Long Island Fire, Rescue & EMS Mega Show
In support of local fire departments, Gershow Recycling is donating 12 vehicles to be used in a two-day extrication competition at the 2013 Long Island Fire, Rescue & EMS Mega Show. The event will take place at the Nassau Coliseum Expo Center on February 23-24.
In this extrication competition, 12 teams will have 20 minutes to take out a "victim” from the car involved in a "crash” while accurately following procedure. Proceeds from the show will benefit the Islip Town Firefighters Museum and Education Center.
Gershow has a longstanding history of providing vehicles to local fire departments for extrication exercises and has opened its facilities to firefighters and first responders for Urban Search and Rescue training exercises and disaster preparedness drills.
