Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) is sponsoring a Free Fire Safety and Home Protection Event that offers community members valuable and potentially life-saving information regarding the use of every-day products, as well as a number of free safety devices.
“The tragedy that one family experienced in Flatbush impacted our entire community,” said Hikind. “All of us must experience this not only as a deep loss but also as a wake-up call to do anything and everything necessary to protect our homes and our loved ones. It is our obligation to be informed and diligent in matters concerning safety.”
Hikind’s event will include presentations from the FDNY as well as a licensed electrician. The first 300 community members who arrive will receive free state-of-the-art wall outlets, courtesy of Zman Technologies and Leviton Mfg., as well as free digital timers, courtesy of Sunlite Timers.
The Fire Safety and Home Protection Event is co-sponsored by NYS Senator Simcha Felder, NYS Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz, and NYC Councilmembers Chaim Deutsch and Brad Lander, who are all scheduled to attend.
The event will begin promptly at 11 am, this Sunday, June 7, at the Bais Yaakov of Boro Park Auditorium, 1371 46th Street, Brooklyn.
