American Security Systems will host a free fire and security symposium and casino night for charity on October 19 at the Midtown Executive Club, New York. The event will benefit the Jerome L. Finkelstein, MD Regional Burn Center at Staten Island University Hospital.

An informative presentation will address the latest technologies in life safety, fire and electronic security. Premier manufacturers in the industry will be presenting in a brief educational and informative format. Presentations will be followed by a casino night filled with fun and charitable giving. The Midtown Executive Club will be transformed into a live and professionally staffed casino, including a full open bar and hors d’oeuvres.

“My labor of love is giving back to the community. We’ve worked on many golf outings to benefit the Burn Center. We’re very excited to work with them on our first annual educational symposium and charity casino night,” commented Kenneth Gould, president, American Security Systems.

The Jerome L. Finkelstein, MD Regional Burn Center admits nearly 700 burn patients a year and has earned a national reputation for the critical care, surgical care and long term treatment of burns in adult and pediatric patients.

“We greatly appreciate the support of American Security Systems for our burn unit, as well as the ongoing support the association provides for all burn units in New York,” said Anthony C. Ferreri, president and chief executive officer, Staten Island University Hospital.
