The larger of the two counties on Long Island, Suffolk County covers roughly 1,000 square miles (86 miles long x 26 miles at it’s widest point) and is the easternmost county in New York State.Target hazards are consistent with Nassau County as well as the above mentioned national laboratory & airports.Due to the many preserved open spaces, a specific hazard encountered in Suffolk County is brush fires necessitating the need for “stumpjumpers”, a locally built variation of the “brush breakers” common in Massachusetts that penetrate deep into the woods to access the “seat” of the fire.The demographics of the Long Island fire service vary greatly with regard to each department’s manpower levels, apparatus fleet and number of responses.Departments range from those handling 200 alarms a year operating from one station with a few apparatus protecting a rural community on the East End to those with multiple stations, large apparatus fleets & 100 active members answering over 3,000 alarms annually.In addition, due to the rural nature of many communities on the East End, this necessitates the use of tankers for water supply & four wheel drive equipped apparatus for beachfront access.
