Juniors Attend County Fire Training Session

Story & photos by  Ex Captain Mike Gunning

On Sunday, November 20th, 2016 fourteen members of the Lynbrook Junior Fire Department and five of their advisors attended the Nassau County Junior Firefighters Association meeting held at the Nassau County Fire Marshal's office in Westbury. Over 190 Junior firefighters attended, and after the meeting concluded the Fire Marshal's office offered a series of demonstrations to explain to the Juniors the various capabilities of their organization. The evolutions included live demonstrations of a propane burn-off and mitigating a leaking hazardous material drum, a tour of a decontamination trailer, an accelerant-detecting K9 demonstration, an apparatus & equipment overview, and demonstrating the capabilities of their Hazmat Robot. Chief Tusa of the Fire Marshal's office had approached the Junior Association leadership with the concept of hosting the meeting and running the demonstration, and it was one of the most heavily-attended meetings that the Association has run. Our thanks go out to Chief Tusa and all of his staff who opened their doors to host the meeting and ran the demonstrations to help prepare the next generation of Lynbrook's firefighters.
