Representatives from Briscoe Protective Systems Inc. took part in the New York Fire Alarm Association’s annual toy drive. For the third year in a row, toys were distributed to young patients at the Stony Brook University Hospital Burn Center. This year’s toy collection was twice the amount distributed as last year.

The annual toy drive is spearheaded by NYFAA President Ron Petrarca, who is also director of operations at Electronix Systems. The toys are given to young burn victims at Stony Brook University Hospital, Staten Island Hospital and Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. Bob Williams, president of Briscoe Protective Systems and member of NYFAA, recommended Stony Brook University Hospital be added to the association’s list of eligible hospitals. In 2010, they received their first donation check to purchase a burn garment and, in 2011, they began receiving toy donations.

The NYFAA, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2014, is comprised of various trade groups within the fire alarm industry who work on expanding its relationship with local authorities who create fire codes, industry education for members and proceeds from their annual golf outing are donated to the burn centers.
