30 Vehicles to be Provided for Use for the 6th Annual Chuck Varese Vehicle Extrication Tournament
In support of local fire departments and through the coordination of Robert J. Varese, former chief of the Northport Fire Department, Gershow Recycling is donating the use of 30 vehicles to be used in the 6th Annual Chuck Varese Vehicle Extrication Tournament, which will take place May 11 at Steer’s Pit (corner of Steers Avenue and Clipper Drive), starting at 9 a.m. Representatives from Gershow will be joined by local elected officials and members of participating fire departments.
Teams from Long Island fire departments will take part in the tournament. Each team will be judged on the amount of time it took to perform the extrication, the handling of equipment and the safety procedures they followed. Proceeds from the tournament will go to benefit the Suffolk County Burn Center.
