The FDNY celebrated Fire Prevention Week in a big way on Oct. 8, with activities and events in Rockefeller Center.

“The best part of my job is to see, first hand, how our fire safety education efforts save lives,” Fire Commissioner Salvatore Cassano said.

In addition to fire safety education, the event included demonstrations, apparatus tours and conversations with FDNY firefighters and EMS members.

Chief of Department Edward Kilduff also joined the Commissioner to swear in 300 New York City students, from all five boroughs, as Junior Firefighters and EMTs.

“Welcome to the bravest of the brave, we love having you here,” Sandy Sansevero, Director of Fire and Life Safety for Tishman Speyer (which operates Rockefeller Center), said.
