🕯️Keep candles away from combustible materials and 12 inches away from anything that could burn if the candle tipped over .
🕯️ Pets and candles don’t mix. They can knock over lit candles while playing or jumping up on furniture.

🏈The Super Bowl is this Sunday!🏈
Make sure to follow some kitchen fire safety tips this weekend! #FireTipFriday
🍗Be on alert! If you are sleepy or have consumed alcohol, don’t use the stove or stove-top
🍽️Keep your grill clean by removing grease or fat buildup from grills & in trays below the grill
Stay in the kitchen while you are frying, grilling, boiling, or broiling food.
🍗Keep anything that can catch fire — oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging, towels or curtains — away from your stove-top.
🍽️Keep an eye on what you fry. If you see wisps of smoke or the oil smells, immediately turn off the burner and/or carefully remove the pan from the burner. Smoke is a danger sign that the oil is too hot.

There has been a rise in fire related deaths this week in NYC. We would like to remind all Long Islanders of a few simple fire safety tips that can save their lives if an emergency occurs.

🚒Check your smoke detector! A working smoke detector can provide you with critical time to escape a fire.
🧯Never plug a large appliance, like a space heater, into an extension cord OR POWER STRIP! Extension cords are for temporary use and can easily short circuit and start a fire.
🚒Talk to your families about an escape plan! Make sure every member knows how to get out and where to go in the event of an emergency.
🧯If a fire occurs in your home, GET OUT, STAY OUT and CALL FOR HELP. Never go back inside for anything or anyone.

🚒Did you know that half of all home heating fires occur during the months of December, January, and February? It is important to keep fire safety in mind when you are heating your home!🚒
🔥Keep anything that can burn at least 3 feet from any heat source like fireplaces, wood stoves, radiators or space heater
🧯Store cooled ashes in a tightly covered metal container, and keep it outside at least 10 feet from your home and any nearby buildings.
🔥Keep portable generators outside, away from windows, and as far away from your home as possible.
🧯Plug only 1 heat-producing appliance (like a space heater) into an electrical outlet at a time.
🔥Install and test carbon monoxide alarms at least once a month.
🧯Have a qualified professional clean and inspect your chimney and vents every year.

Thanksgiving is almost here! Did you know Thanksgiving Day is the top day for home fires?
Take a minute to review some of these cooking safety tips in preparation! Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!
👨‍🍳Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stove top so you can keep an eye on the food.
🦃Stay in the home when cooking your turkey, and check on it frequently.
👨‍🍳Keep children away from the stove. The stove will be hot and kids should stay three feet away.
🦃Make sure kids stay away from hot food and liquids. The steam or splash from vegetables, gravy or coffee could cause serious burns.
👨‍🍳Keep knives out of the reach of children.
🦃Be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer or mixer are not dangling off the counter within easy reach of a child.
👨‍🍳Keep matches and utility lighters out of the reach of children — up high in a locked cabinet.
🦃Never leave children alone in room with a lit candle.
👨‍🍳Keep the floor clear so you don’t trip over kids, toys, pocketbooks or bags.
🦃Make sure your smoke alarms are working. Test them by pushing the test button.

Did you know home fires happen most often in the winter? In the event of a fire in the home, remember the following tips! #FireTipFriday
🔥 Remember to GET OUT, STAY OUT and CALL 9-1-1 or your local emergency phone number.
🚒 Yell "Fire!" several times and go outside right away. If you live in a building with elevators, use the stairs. Leave all your things where they are and save yourself.
🔥If closed doors or handles are warm or smoke blocks your primary escape route, use your second way out. Never open doors that are warm to the touch.
🚒If you must escape through smoke, get low and go under the smoke to your exit. Close doors behind you.
🔥If smoke, heat or flames block your exit routes, stay in the room with doors closed. Place a wet towel under the door and call the fire department or 9-1-1. Open a window and wave a brightly colored cloth or flashlight to signal for help.
🚒Once you are outside, go to your meeting place and then send one person to call the fire department. If you cannot get to your meeting place, follow your family emergency communication plan.
🔥Remember to STOP,DROP, and ROLL if your clothing catches fire.

We were happy to participate in this wonderful event for a local family.

On the morning of Saturday, November 2nd, 2019 hundreds of motorcyclists gathered at the Nassau County Firefighters Museum for the Unbreakable Brooke Motorcycle Run Fundraiser. The event was held to benefit Brooke Graffeo who was born earlier this year and is the daughter of Bo and Gabby [both who are with the Nassau County Police Department Emergency Ambulance Bureau and the Levittown Fire Department]. She was born 6 weeks early and has been a fighter from the start, diagnosed with Hypomelanosis of ITO syndrome (HITS), Polymicrogyria (PMG) and Epilepsy. The fundraiser was held to help with her medical expenses which includes an upcoming trip to Boston.

🎃👻As Halloween approaches, make sure you follow these safety tips!👻🎃

🎃 Tell children to stay away from open flames including jack-o-lanterns with candles in them. Be sure they know how to stop, drop and roll if their clothing catches fire.
👻 If your child is wearing a mask, make sure the eye holes are large enough so he or she can see out.
🎃 When trick-or-treating at night, children with flashlights to carry for lighting or glow sticks as part of their costume.
👻Dried flowers, cornstalks and crepe paper catch fire easily. Keep all decorations away from open flames and other heat sources like light bulbs and heaters.
🎃Use a battery-operated candle or glow-stick in jack-o-lanterns. If you use a real candle, use extreme caution.
👻If your children are going to Halloween parties at others’ homes, have them look for ways out of the home and plan how they would get out in an emergency.

Thank you to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) for their helpful tips!
