It is time for Spring Cleaning! When thinking about your home, make sure to remove clutter from all exits of the home. Clutter can make your home inaccessible to firefighters and make it harder for you to make a quick exit, should a fire erupt. As part of your cleaning, make sure to vacuum and check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

Now that you have dug out your driveway and cleared your exits (and any nearby fire hydrants!), make sure your exhaust vents are clear from snow. If they are unable to vent properly, it can cause a build up of carbon monoxide. Also, make sure you have a carbon monoxide detector installed and working, just in case. Stay safe!

THANK YOU!! Thank you to all who came out to support our Toys for Tots toy drive. We filled nearly two trailers of toys!

On Saturday, a drive-up toy drive was held at the Nassau County Firefighters Museum and Education Center to benefit the Toys for Tots program [which is seeing less donations this year due to the pandemic]. Those who donated a toy received free admission to the museum. Several fire departments swung by to help and additional photos can be found on the link below. | https://www.k2mphotography.com/Firefighting/Nassau-County-Firefighters-Museum/Fire-Museum-Toy-Drive-12-12-20/

John here. I have exciting news. Today, we introduced our Firefighter Tribute Socks. I helped design these socks to say thank you to all the firefighters like my Uncle Ron, Coach Joe, my Special Olympics Coach, Nick Smith, a classmate of mine, and my friend Anthony D'Esposito.

I rode on a fire truck and delivered the socks to the Firefighter's Museum because we donate 10 percent of the socks to the Museum. And then I rode on a fire truck to different firehouses to hand out socks and say thank you. I had so much fun.

Buying these socks helps us say thank you for all the good work that firefighters all across America do. And every time you buy from John's Crazy Socks, you help give a job to my colleagues with differing abilities.
I hope you love the socks (and the masks). Thank you so much.
