A Message from the Chief
I would like to thank all of the Wantagh Fire District residents for their support of the Wantagh Fire Department over the past years, especially as we continue to navigate the Covid-19 Pandemic. I hope that you and your family are well.
Wantagh is one of the largest Fire Districts in Nassau County covering all of Wantagh, and parts of Levittown, Seaford, East Meadow, and Bellmore as well as Jones Beach State Park and Tobay Beach. In addition to Fire and EMS alarms, auto accidents, and other types of miscellaneous emergency calls, the Wantagh Fire Department has an Incident Management Team, Hazardous Materials Team and a Dive/Water Rescue Team, which works in conjunction with a 31-foot Fire/Rescue boat that provides emergency services for the many waterways within our Fire District.
Over the past year we have responded to more than 2300 calls for emergency services within our community as well as surrounding areas. This is in addition to many hours of planning and providing for Fire/Rescue and EMS leadership and support for the Bethpage Air Show and the annual July 4th Fireworks at Jones Beach, and many other special events throughout the year.
The Wantagh F.D. has approximately 250 dedicated men and women who volunteer their time and who respond to your needs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 365 days a year. In addition to emergency response, our members train at a minimum of once a week to maintain their skills and also attend classes at the Nassau Fire Academy to keep proficient in the services that we provide. We also aggressively educate the residents of our community and all school children through our public outreach and Fire Prevention programs.
The safety of your family should be as much your priority as it is ours. Please review some of the important safety tips on our website and watch our Facebook page to stay informed about your volunteers. You can also learn how to keep your family and home safe.
