As we “spring forward” today, it is a great time to check your smoke detectors. Clean the dust from them, test to make sure they’re in working condition and if they are not hard wired, time to change the battery. A great reminder to make your family fire-safe! For more fire safety tips, visit the Museum today!

Happy New Year! It is time to clean up your holiday decorations. All live Christmas trees should be removed from the house this week, as they have served their purpose and can cause deadly fires should they ignite.
As the new year begins, please make sure you have working smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in your homes. They are your first line of defense against a fire and can save your life.

Holiday Safety

Today, along with Nassau County Fire Service Academy we illustrated the dangers of an improperly hydrated Christmas tree. Please keep your tree watered and placed away from any heat sources, exits or staircases.
As Chanukah approaches, if you are using lamp oil or candles, never leave them unattended. Make sure the area around your candles are clear from any combustible materials.
Have a fire-safe holiday!

Fire safety: Can your bedroom door keep flames and smoke out?

Officials are issuing an urgent alert when it comes to home fires – sleep with your bedroom door closed. Turns out, this simple decision dramatically increases your chance of survival if your house were to catch fire. TODAY national investigative correspondent Jeff Rossen reports and has an eye-op...

Thank you to all those who came out Sunday to support the Museum. Congratulations to this year's winner!

The 2018 #LongIsland Peter's Clam Bar #ClamEatingContest is in the record books! Over 3000 clams were eaten during the competition - all for a great cause, the Nassau County Firefighters Museum & Education Center.

Congrats to our 2018 Champion, Pete Adams and those who followed a close 2nd and 3rd, Charles William Hendry and Augie DeRiggi!

The #bravest from one end of Long Island to the other were on hand - Island Park Volunteer Fire Department, Rockville Centre Fire Dept, Hempstead Volunteer Fire Dept, Stewart Manor Fire Department, Lynbrook Fire Department, Point Lookout-Lido FD, NLFD CO5 RAMS, Islip Fire Department, Hagerman Fire Department, Franklin Square & Munson Fire Department and Bellrose FD - all sent their best clam eaters to represent, support the museum, and raise some money for their departments!

Nassau County Executive Laura Curran and I were thrilled to see so many partners in government out to root on competitors - Assemblywoman Melissa "Missy" Miller, Councilman Dennis Dunne, Sr., Councilwoman Chumi Diamond and others, all out to support a great cause!

This event wouldn't be possible without the unparalleled generosity of Butch Yamali and the hardworking staff at Peter's Clam Bar! Job well done by Chief James Miotto and the members of the Island Park Volunteer Fire Department for working so hard to put this together!

See you all next year!

Come support the Museum and have a fun afternoon today at Peter’s Clam Bar!

Come support the Museum and have a fun afternoon today at Peter’s Clam Bar!

Preparations are underway for the #LongIsland #ClamEatingContest at Peter's Clam Bar!

It's definitely not a beach day - so why not come down to Peter's Clam Bar and cheer on the dozens of participants looking to break the Guiness World Record for most clams eaten. With all money raised going to the Nassau County Firefighters Museum & Education Center, its a fun day for an amazing cause!

Live music, tons of food/drink specials and a front row seat to one of the best competitive food events in the area!

Nassau County Executive Laura Curran, Hon. Chief Butch Yamali, Island Park Volunteer Fire Department Chief James Miotto and I look forward to welcoming all of you, as well as two Guiness Book of Records Champs, Takeru Kobayashi and Edward J. Jarvis!

See you all at Peter's Clam Bar! The show goes on rain or shine and yes, YOU CAN STILL REGISTER TO COMPETE!
