Fire prevention open house held at Brentwood Firehouse in honor of National Fire Prevention Week

The Brentwood Firehouse volunteered its time Saturday to give Long Islanders the knowledge they need to survive a fire in honor of National Fire Prevention Week.



Dozens of families turned out for the annual event, which included free face painting and a wide array of activities. Some residents walked away with free smoke detectors for their homes.



Joe Coyle, of PSEG Long Island, was also on hand to demonstrate the dangers of downed power lines. By using props, Coyle was able to send an important message about a potentially serious situation.



Other demonstrations covered smoke detector safety, as well as how firefighters suit up to combat flames. Fire Chief Javier Valentin says he hopes their effort makes a difference.
