In support of local Fire, Rescue and Emergency Medical Services crews, Gershow Recycling donated two vehicles to the Hauppauge Fire Department for an extrication exercise the firefighters performed during its Annual Fire Prevention Open House on October 6.
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 Hauppauge Fire Department expressed their gratitude for Gershow’s support and unique opportunities for simulated emergency training.
