Gershow Recycling donated six cars to the New York City Police Emergency Service Unit for their extrication practice as part of their emergency training that took place on December 6-7 at the Hagerman Fire Department.
NYC Police Emergency Service Unit members used the "Jaws of Life” and other tools on the vehicles in the event they needed to extricate a "victim” from a vehicle involved in a "crash.” They expressed their gratitude for Gershow’s support and unique opportunities for simulated emergency training. Gershow Safety Director Charles Keeling has a connection to the New York Police Department, having served as a member of the NYPD.
The New York City Police Emergency Service Unit is a citywide unit which responds to emergency situations and hostage negotiations.
