German Firefighters Visit New York City
On Tuesday May 1st, Three Firefighters from Haverlah Germany arrived in NY. They are here to look at the different aspects of American Firefighting. They are particularly interested in the Junior Firefighter Programs we have here. Through the NVFC and FASNY, Nassau County was connected with this group. Not only have we been showing them the history and culture of NY but have had extensive talks about the youth program here in Nassau County. We are hoping in the very near future to set up an exchange program with the two groups, they are very interested in having some of their Juniors attend the Nassau County Camp Fahrenheit 5116 Camp in July next year. It has been an absolute pleasure having them here and working towards the same goal. Follow us on the progress of this mission.
