As part of National Fire Prevention Month, Great Neck Road Elementary School had a visit from the Copiague Fire Department on Oct. 17. Gathered in the cafeteria, each grade participated in the fire safety assembly conducted by volunteer members of the fire department and EMS.

Students learned fire safety tips, best practices, what to do in the event of an emergency and how to be prepared in your home with an escape route and functioning smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. They learned how firefighters use their tools for rescue in an emergency and watched a fireman dress up in his gear.
