 Northport, NY – In support of local fire departments, Gershow Recycling donated the use of 35 cars for the 17th Annual Chuck Varese Vehicle Extrication Tournament, which was held at the Northport Fire Department’s Training Grounds at Steer’s Pit in Northport on May 11. 

Thirty-one teams from seventeen fire departments participated in the tournament, which involved small groups of firefighters working to extricate a “victim” from a “crash.” Each team was judged on the amount of time it took to perform the extrication, the handling of equipment and the safety procedures they followed. The top three teams were:

      • 1st Place — Commack #4 (8 minutes, 3 seconds)
      • 2nd Place — Commack #2 (8 minutes, 35 seconds)
      • 3rd Place — Huntington #3 (11 minutes, 25 seconds)

Northport #1 had the fastest evolution time of the Tournament at 3 minutes, 26 seconds.

After the tournament, the vehicles were brought back to Gershow’s facility, where they were shredded and recycled.

Fire Departments Use Electric Tools to Cut up the Vehicles

In support of local fire departments, Gershow Recycling donated the use of 30 cars for the 16th Annual Chuck Varese Vehicle Extrication Tournament, which was held at the Northport Fire Department’s Training Grounds at Steer’s Pit in Northport on May 13. Gershow also donated the use of its Huntington facility to enable teams to practice in the week leading up to the tournament.

Twenty-seven teams from fifteen fire departments participated in the tournament, which involved groups of five firefighters working to extricate a “victim” from a “crash” using the Jaws of Life.

  • 1st Place — East Northport FD (6 minutes, 26 seconds)
  • 2nd Place — Northport FD (6 minutes, 50 seconds)
  • 3rd Place — Commack FD (8 minutes, 40 seconds)
