LEGISLATOR BELESI ATTENDS GROUND BREAKING OF NEW FIRE TRAINING FACILITY
Nassau County Legislator Joseph Belesi was proud to join with County Executive Ed Mangano and fellow Legislators to attend the ground breaking for the construction of new training facilities, known as Burn Buildings, at the Nassau County Fire Service Academy (NCFSA) in Bethpage. Half of thecurrent training facilities became unsafe and were closed several years ago after being used for nearly five decades totrain first responders on the safety measures needed when fighting structural fires.
“These new training facilities are vital to ensure the safety of our first responders and fire fighters,” said Legislator Belesi. “These brave men and women put their lives on the line daily, and I’m glad they have a new training facility.”
