Now is a great time to clear the clutter! Make sure to clear all hallways and exits in your home of any clutter. This will make it easier for you and your family to escape, should there be a fire or other emergency. It will also allow easier access for first responders during an emergency.

While we are all home with our loved ones, let's make sure our homes are safe! Check your smoke detectors - check the batteries, test each of them and vacuum the lint out of them. If you don't have smoke detectors, now is a great time to install them (along with carbon monoxide detectors!).

At the Nassau County Firefighters Museum and Education Center, our number one priority is always the safety of our visitors. We have been closely monitoring the evolving events of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) as it continues to spread locally and around the world.
By order of the County, we will be required to close our doors to ensure the safety and well-being of visitors and our staff. As of Friday, March 13th at 5pm, all of Museum Row will be closed for the next two weeks. Please check our website and social media for updates.
We thank all of the first responders for all that they do, and we look forward to seeing everyone again once we reopen. Please stay safe and healthy.

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.
