What would you do in the event of an emergency? Are you aware of the information needed to relay to police or the fire department? What about power outages or wires down on your vehicle – or even terrorism threats? Kitchen fires, auto accidents, heart attacks – we cover it all.

Learn what you need to know at Winthrop-University Hospital’s Mini-Med seminar, “Emergency – What to Do” on Wednesday, February 5, 2014, from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM. The free program is open to the public and will be held at the Spatz Conference Center, located in the lower level of the Hospital at 259 First Street in Mineola. It will consist of an interactive presentation designed to promote an awareness that may help keep you and your family safe in the event of an emergency.

Gary T. Ferrucci, PC, EMT-CC, CIC, an expert EMS Coordinator and senior member of the Valley Stream Fire Department, will address a variety of emergencies, including but not limited to, weather, medical, chemical and more. Detective Laurel Tobias, from the Nassau County Crime Scene Unit, will also be available to provide valuable insight.

Other EMTs will join the presentation to provide attendees with an engaging experience that promises to be entertaining as well as educational. Additional highlights of the evening will include a quick overview of CPR and the use of an AED, as well as a simulated drunken driving demonstration.

The event will be moderated by James L. Capozzi, MD, Chairman, Winthrop’s Department of Orthopaedics.

Mr. Ferrucci is a former Fire Department Chief, Nassau County Police Officer, Detective and Investigator in the Nassau County Homicide Squad. Mr. Ferrucci has tremendous first-hand experience in emergency situations of all types. He was also awarded the New York State “Medal of Valor” from Governor George E. Pataki in 2009.

Seating is limited and reservations are required. To reserve a space, please call (516) 663-8301.
