HIGHBRIDGE -

The FDNY hosted a summer block party Saturday in Highbridge, where members of the FDNY held demonstrations and offered free fire and life safety education.  

All children who attended got the chance to meet the FDNY Fire and Life Safety mascots, ‘Hot Dog’ and ‘Siren.’

Organizers say this was the fourth year the FDNY has held summer block parties. 

Saturday's event was the last FDNY summer block party for the year.

Previous events were held in all five boroughs and were made possible by the generous support from the FDNY foundation.
