Firefighters help Sandy victims

WATERTOWN, N.Y. — A fully loaded truck arrived shortly before 2 p.m. Friday at the Long Beach Fire Department in Nassau County with cleaning products, toys and bottled water donated by Jefferson County businesses and individuals to aid in Hurricane Sandy recovery.

"It may seem like a small gesture to send cleaning supplies and toys to some people," Long Beach Fire Chief Richard Corbett said in an email, "but when you have to rebuild an entire city, it means the world to us. The people in your town took time to help total strangers, so all I can do is say thank you. I will never forget your generosity, and I hope to one day be in your town to personally thank you all."
