The history of the South Floral Park Fire Department dates back to the early 1920’s. The new fire house at 383 Roquette Avenue was dedicated on October 19, 1986. You must be at least 18 years old to join the department. Full professional training is conducted by Officers of the Department and by the Fire Service Academy. General membership meeting is the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 8:00pm. Sponsored events include Annual Fire Prevention Month activities in October and the Firemen’s Field remembrance and wreath placing. Donations are mostly collected once a year through a firefighter-hosted fundraiser. We are always seeking new volunteer members to serve our community and save lives. Please contact Chief Kevin Bellamy at the fire house at 516-354-7833 for further information.
Fire Department Juniors Program In 2016, the fire department initiated a program for local children between 14 & 17 years old to become part of the department & provide them much-needed support while gaining valuable experience & training. This program not only allows for technical learning but fosters a sense of community, camaraderie, & gives members something to do on their free time while helping to save lives. The program also facilitates their joining the department once they turn 18 years old. Please contact the Fire Department for an application at 516-354-7833.
