Throughout Public Safety Night, Oceanside police officers, firefighters and lifeguards will be handing out items such as coloring books, stickers and hats, as well as sharing public safety information and opportunities to become part of our city’s safety team, including:

• Surf, swim, and boating safety
Back for the third year, the Remembrance Rescue Project is a nonprofit created by firefighters to restore the fire trucks of Rescue Cos. 4 and 5 of the Fire Department of the City of New York from 9/11. By preserving Rescues 4 and 5 as rolling educational platforms, historical artifacts and memorials, the project has worked with fire departments across the country since 2011 to teach children the historical importance of 9/11 while keeping the memories of the firefighters who were lost that day alive. The Remembrance Rescue Project will have a special memorial display at Public Safety Night.
