Fifteen junior firefighters from the Great Neck Alert Fire Company spent the day at the Nassau County Fire Service Academy in Bethpage, learning what it takes to become a real firefighter.

These juniors, along with more than 180 other Nassau County junior firefighters, participated in the 7th Annual Nassau County Junior Firefighters’ Association Training Day.

Forty-six instructors from fire departments across Nassau County, including the Great Neck Alert Fire Company, provided training in four areas: the search and rescue of victims; forcible entry using special tools such as a halligan or pry bar; climbing an aerial ladder from a firetruck, in full gear, into a three-story building and out the other side via a second aerial ladder; and bringing a hose line into a building and attaching nozzles to put out simulated fires while searching for victims.
