Chief

Welcome to the Plainview Fire Department website. We are pleased to present this site for you to use as a means of discovering your local fire department. The highly dedicated men and women that proudly serve the communities of Plainview and Old Bethpage are committed to excellence.

The Plainview Volunteer Fire Department, located on Long Island 30 miles east of New York City, provides fire protection and emergency services to Plainview, Old-Bethpage, and parts of Woodbury.

We have three stations staffed by volunteer members and a fleet of apparatus that consists of four engines, two ladders, one heavy rescue, four ALS equipped ambulances, and a medical first responder “fly car.”

In addition to the fleet is an off-road 4-wheel drive vehicle (Gator) fully stocked with medical supplies. This will allow us to adequately protect the miles of State Green Belt Trail running through our community.

The Plainview Volunteer Fire Department responds to approximately 2,200 emergency/fire related incidents annually.

Our area of protection is approximately 9.4 square miles. We protect 30,000 residences and three industrial parks that employ approximately 15,000 people.

The Long Island Expressway (Rte 495), Seaford-Oyster Bay Expressway (Rte 135), and the Northern State Parkway bring us upward of 350,000 people daily that may require our assistance as they travel through our district.

Throughout this website, you will find various menus where you can obtain additional information such as fire department facts, services, programs, and the latest news. If you would like to learn more about the Plainview Fire Department, please contact us to arrange a visit.

I am proud to be the Chief of the Plainview Fire Department but even more proud of the many fire and rescue professionals who volunteer to serve and protect this community.
