In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, many residents who have been affected by the storm have lost everything and are dealing with challenging conditions.

The Nassau County Firefighters Museum and Education Center in Garden City teamed up with Kidde, who donated the detectors, to distribute them to people who need them the most.

The 5,000 smoke and carbon monoxide detectors were donated to 15 volunteer fire departments in areas hardest-hit by Sandy. The volunteer firefighters will then distribute the detectors to residents.

“Unfortunately, during these extreme times with dangerous conditions, we are seeing an increase in carbon monoxide incidents and also fires,” said Angelo Catalano, president of the museum’s board. “The Firefighters Museum, along with Kidde, thought that donating these smoke and carbon monoxide detectors will protect residents who need them now and also in the future when they rebuild. We thank Kidde for keeping Long Island in mind during these trying times.”

Nassau County Firefighter Museum officials and Kidde handed the detectors to the following departments:
  • Baldwin Volunteer Fire Department
  • Bayville Volunteer Fire Department
  • Bellmore Volunteer Fire Department
  • East Rockaway Volunteer Fire Department
  • Freeport Volunteer Fire Department
  • Inwood Fire Department
  • Island Park Volunteer Fire Department
  • Long Beach Volunteer Fire Department
  • Lido-Pt. Lookout Volunteer Fire Department
  • Massapequa Volunteer Fire Department
  • Meadowmere Park Volunteer Fire Department
  • Merrick Volunteer Fire Department
  • Oceanside Volunteer Fire Department
  • Seaford Volunteer Fire Department
  • Wantagh Volunteer Fire Department
