Fire alarms sound to honor Sandy Hook victims

The Suffolk County Department of Fire Rescue and Emergency Services advised all county fire departments and districts that a national commemoration for Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims would take place Friday morning, according to Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone’s office.

If you heard an emergency alarm sounding at 9:45 a.m., know that all fire departments  were  invited to voluntarily sound their alarms 26 times to honor the 26 victims of the Newtown, Conn. tragedy and the firefighters and EMS personnel who responded to the incident.
