From the Chiefs
The Eaton's Neck Fire Department
is proud to provide fire/rescue services to our community. The department is made up of residents with regular full time jobs
who give their time selflessly to protect our lives and property 7x24x365 days a year. As
soon the alarm sounds we are on the job. Our Members - your neighbors - drop whatever
they are doing regardless of the time of day, holiday, family event or weather and
respond to the needs of the community.
Training is a significant commitment especially
on our EMT crew. Maintaining your NY State EMT Licence requires more than 150 hours of classroom and hands-on training
every three years; Advanced Life Support (ALS) requires upwards of 225.
On the firematic
side we drill on average of three times a month. Our drills focus on fire suppression tactics and strategy as well as community awareness specific to major renovations
& new construction that impact our approach in the event of a fire or emergency.
Below is a summary of our activity for 2013 highlighting the commitment
each and every member demonstrates on a regular basis.

Chiefs & members of the Eaton's Neck Fire Department thank you for your continued support and we look forward to serving
you in 2014!
