tomorrow, collectible red NYI hats for the first 10,000 fans; tickets up to 40% off for Firefighters; Fire trucks, equipment, exhibits, demonstrations and a chili cook-off all part of the festivities

The New York Islanders will honor the Bravest when they host Firefighters Appreciation Night tomorrow. On Saturday, the Islanders will try to “extinguish” the New Jersey Devils at the Nassau Coliseum. Game time is at 7:00 PM, but activities start much earlier as the Islanders salute firefighters across Long Island and New York.

All firefighters attending the game can purchase tickets up to 40% off box office prices which start at $16. Firefighters can either call 1.800.882.ISLES, ext. 3 to reach the Islanders Group Sales office or purchase tickets the day of the game at the Nassau Coliseum Box Office. Proper firefighters identification is required.

On the Coliseum Plaza, starting at 4:30 pm, there will be an assortment of fire trucks and displays - old and new - provided by the East Meadow and Plainview Fire Departments, as well as the Terry Farrell Fund, which is scholarship dedicated to helping children of all active, retired, disabled and deceased FDNY members or volunteer department members residing in the four counties of Long Island.

The finals of the Q104.3 and New York Islanders First Annual Firefighter Chili Cook-Off will take place at the Family Fan Fest event on the Coliseum Plaza before the game. The contest will pit the recipes of two local firehouses to see who can cook the best chili.

The National Anthem's color guard will be a combined effort between the East Meadow and Plainview Fire Departments, and the Brentwood Fire Department will provide a Marching Band that will perform on the Coliseum Plaza and during the intermissions.

At the game, the first 10,000 fans will receive a collectible a red Islanders Firefighters Appreciation Night hat courtesy of Winthrop University Hospital when they enter the Coliseum. The limited edition hat is the first installment of a three-part, hat-themed series.

The Islanders will also partake in several fundraising activities with a portion of the proceeds going to firefighter related charities. The Islanders have donated 85 tickets to local fire departments.
