Welcome to our blog. The purpose of this site is to inform and educate the public by charting the history of fires, emergencies and other relevant fire service events that occur within the Township of Smithtown and the Village of Lake Grove.
The information here will only deal with incidents where one of the fire departments or ambulance corps that cover the Town and Village responded to (both within and outside the Town and Village).
Those agencies are:
Commack Fire Department
Commack Volunteer Ambulance Corp
Hauppauge Fire Department
Central Islip/Hauppauge Volunteer Ambulance Corp
Kings Park Fire Department
Smithtown Fire Department
Saint James Fire Department
Nesconset Fire Department
Nissequogue Fire Department
Centereach Fire Department
Ronkonkoma Fire Department
Setauket Fire Department
If you have information, pictures, video or anything else that relates to these departments including, fires, car accidents, water incidents, fire prevention activities (open houses, school visits etc), community activities (blood drives, food drives, CPR classes, fund raisers etc), wet downs or anything else, shoot us a text, an email or a tweet as we would be happy to share the information here. You will be credited for whatever you send us.
Our Twitter feed is up and running so if there is a call or pic you want to tweet, send it to suburban40. It will appear in the sidebar of our webpages. All we ask is that you keep to the format of the existing tweets.
Thanks again for stopping by and enjoy the site.
