Volunteer firefighters and EMS workers from Copiague Fire Department visited with students at Great Neck Road Elementary School as part of National Fire Prevention Month in October.

During two assemblies for the school, the volunteers spoke about fire safety, how to prevent fires and what to do in case of an emergency. The students were taught about smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors and why they are so important. The students learned the role of the firefighter, the tools they use and what they look like all dressed up in their gear.
