Attention NY-SAFE Officers/Directors, in light of the events going on in the world today over Covid-19. NY-SAFE will be postponing our Spring Meeting which was to be held in Albany, April 3rd and 4th. President Rich Frasco would like to let everyone know that we will be moving the meeting to sometime in the Fall.

Doing this it would accomplish two things:

1) Give us space and time with this virus
2) Moving the meeting to Fall that would also give us more time between meetings. Currently we meet in March/April time then again in May. There is very little to report so close together.

"Hopefully we will all be at the Pub-Ed Conference in May. Tom thank you for the work you have done in setting everything up. We hope there is no issues canceling reservations. Everyone stay safe and well and see you in May."

NY-SAFE President Rich Frasco

Fall is here, winter and snow will soon follow. Please be aware of children walking to school, and Buses on the streets.
Remember to be fire safe, and when out celebrating, let someone else drive if you are partaking in adult beverages. Remember, it's not only fire calls everyone needs to get home safe from.
