Winter Storms – Clear Your Fire Hydrants!

Yesterday, approximately 13.5″ of snow is on the ground around Centereach and it’s surrounding areas.

This high amount of snow will cover fire hydrants and the area around them.  Preparing and charging a fire hydrant is one of the most important and fundamental objectives of the fire department during a fire call.

Hydrants supply water to the apparatus, which enables our units to attack the fire effectively and aggressively.

Please take a moment to clear a path to your nearest fire hydrant and at least a 3 feet circumference around the Hydrant.  This allows our fire personnel to safely work around the hydrant.

 

Annual Holiday Light Show with Santa!

The Centereach Fire Department successfully hosted their annual Holiday Light Parade with Santa on Saturday, December 17th.  This year, thousands of Centereach residents utilized the Facebook Live video feed to “track Santa”, allowing them to remain in doors longer and see when the trucks are close by.

The fire department appreciates the amount of attention and publicity our annual Santa run gets and we have all enjoyed seeing such a large turn out from the residents of Centereach.
