In support of local fire departments and the Huntington community, Gershow Recycling donated the use of 30 vehicles for the 8th Annual Chuck Varese Vehicle Extrication Tournament, which was held at the Northport Fire Department’s Training Grounds at Steer's Pit in Northport on May 9.
Fifteen teams from 10 fire departments in the Town of Huntington, as well as fire departments from North Bellmore, Kings Park and first-time participant Amityville, competed in the tournament. Each team was judged on the amount of time it took to perform the extrication, the handling of equipment and the safety procedures they followed. After the tournament ended, the vehicles were shredded and recycled at Gershow's facility.
