Ducks help raise awareness on fire safety

(Central Islip, N.Y., Oct. 11, 2013) – On Friday, October 11, QuackerJack stopped by the Central Islip Fire Department to take part in the Fire Prevention Week activities. The week ran from October 7 through 12.

Residents of the fire district were educated on the importance of fire safety, both in the home and out of it. There were live demonstrations on fire safety, as well as exhibits and the distribution of education materials. QJ enjoyed the festivities by taking pictures with those in attendance and observing the various demonstrations going on.
