FDNY Engine 88 hosts block party

The FDNY's Engine 88 is throwing a block party on Belmont Avenue this weekend to celebrate 150 years.



The celebration also allowed Bronx children to get an up close look at the inside of a firehouse. 



They also learned how to use a fire hose and free someone trapped inside a car.



Firefighters were on hand to teach children CPR, and paramedics explained how they perform work in the back of an ambulance.
