   SEMINAR FOR NASSAU COUNTY JUNIOR FIREFIGHTERS

DATE & TIME - Sunday April 26th - 10:00 am

 

LOCATION - Nassau Community College - CCB Building

 

TOPIC - Safety & Wellness for New Firefighters

 

INSTRUCTOR - Chief Brian McQueen - Deputy County Coordinator - Onidea County, NY - Director FASNY - NYSAFC Conference Committee - Cancer Survivor


DESCRIPTION - Welcome to the Fire Service.  You are the future of the VOLUNTEER fire service in Nassau County.  You are entering a brotherhood like no other.  We treat each other like family.  However, as you have seen, Firefighting is no joke.  The chance for injury / illness for a firefighter is threefold compared to anyone else.  You can potentially be exposed to many harmful things throughout your tenure in the fire service.  The number of firefighters (regardless of age) being diagnosed with some sort of cancer or illness today is stifiling.


     This seminar, instructed by an active firefighter and cancer survivor will point you in the right direction RIGHT FROM THE START!  Before your first run as a firefighter, you will learn the importance of personal protective equipment - not only how to wear it, but how to maintain it,  how to recognize hazards we face and properly protect yourself.   This 90 minute seminar will educate and inform you, so that when the whistle blows and it is your turn, you are ready.


     This seminar is proudly hosted by the Fire Chiefs Council of Nassau County and is FREE to ALL Junior Firefighters throughout Nassau County.  Doors open for registration at 9:00 am and refreshments will be served to all attendees.


     As an added bonus, there will be staff from Nassau Community College on location with information on higher education and information on the college for anyone interested.


 

Please contact me at kmcelynn@aol.com if you would like to attend this free seminar.  We do not need individuals names, but your Department and approximate number of members you are planning on bringing so that we can make proper arrangements for refreshments and seating for all.


Thank You,

Kevin P. McElynn
