National Weather Service Alerts for Suffolk County, NY
Welcome to the Nesconset Fire Department
Winter storms and plowing operations can often hide the hydrants under a mountain of snow making them impossible to find quickly. In the event of a fire, firefighters have to locate and shovel out fire hydrants before getting WATER. Precious time is lost and when a fire occurs we need that time to save lives and keep damage to a minimum. Fire can double in size every 17 seconds. Having unimpeded access to the hydrants can make a significant difference on the fire scene.
We are asking that you help us by keeping the fire hydrant closest to your residence or business clear of snow. We need a 3-foot path leading from the street to the hydrant and a 3-foot path around the hydrant.
If you contract with a private contractor to plow your driveway and shovel your sidewalks, please instruct your contractor to remove the snow from around a fire hydrant if one is in front of your home.
MISSION STATEMENT :
To provide the finest professional quality emergency responses to our Residents, Property Owners, Neighborhood Visitors, Commercial Store owners and our Neighbors, in the event of Fire, Medical Emergencies, Accidents, and other Natural or Man-made disasters.
