In support of local fire, rescue and emergency medical services crews, Gershow Recycling donated the use of a passenger bus that was used by the Hagerman Fire Department and the South Country Ambulance Corps for a mass casualty drill performed at the fire department’s training facility in East Patchogue on April 19.

During the exercise, firefighters and first responders rescued "victims” from a "crash” involving a passenger bus. The "victims” — portrayed by students from Bellport High School and members of the Hagerman Fire Department Junior Squad, the South Country Ambulance Corps Junior Squad and the Mastic Ambulance Corps Junior Squad — were treated for their "injuries” and transported to Brookhaven Hospital. The Hagerman Fire Department thanked Gershow for their support and unique opportunities for simulated emergency training.
