Melville Fire Department Educates On Fire Safety And Prevention

The Melville Fire Department recently held its annual open house at fire headquarters on Sweet Hollow Road, drawing several hundred visitors who learned about fire prevention and safety, and got to see actual firefighting and rescue demonstrations.

There were free raffles and prizes for smoke alarms and fire extinguishers, snacks served by the Junior Explorers, and an inflatable bounce house for the kids.

Fire officials gave special thanks to the Suffolk County Volunteer Firefighters Burn Center and Love on a Leash Therapy Dogs for their participation.

Melville Fire Chief Jason Bernfeld added, “The Open House is a great opportunity for our residents to learn about our department, and provide them with an educational and enjoyable experience.”
