Holtsville Fire Department proudly protects 10000 people living in an area of 3.5 square miles. We operate out of 1 station that protects a primarily residential area. Our department is a public department whose members are on a volunteer status.
The Holtsville Fire Department provides both Fire and Ambulance services to the community. There are 42 members of the Fire Company and 13 members of the Ambulance Company. Each of the 13 Ambulance Company members are trained Emergency Medical Technicians and several Paramedic's. There are several large industries that make their home in our district. They are: LILCO Natural Gas Plant, Long Island Power Authority, Tosco Fuel Supply, Symbol Technologies World Headquarters, The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and a Best Western Hotel. There are thousands of vehicles that travel on the several major roadways in our district daily. We currently respond to requests from our surrounding departments for the mobilization of our Rapid Intervention Team (RIT). Our department has one engine fully equipped and dedicated to any RIT request. Our members are fully trained on all RIT techniques and use of all RIT equipment. Several members of the department are specially trained in confined space rescue, rope rescue, high angle rescue and Hazardous Materials Technicians. The department also sponsors a department softball team that competes with other local fire departments.
