HAUPPAUGE FIRE DEPARTMENT DONATES $5,000 TO TUNNEL TO TOWERS

On May 21st the Hauppauge Fire Department presented a check to the Tunnel To Towers Foundation in the amount of Five Thousand Dollars. The donation was made in the name of the late Ex-Chief Stephen A. Feron of the Hauppauge Fire Department.

In April the Hauppauge Fire District, the Hauppauge Fire Department and the Hauppauge School District partnered to host Hoops For Heroes, a fund raising event that benefited the Hauppauge Fire Department and the Hauppauge School District’s charities. The Hauppauge Fire Department chose to raise their portion for the T2T Foundation.

The check was presented to Mr. Austin Byrd, Associate Vice President, Development, Tunnel To Towers Foundation by Commissioner Scott E. Munro at the Hauppauge Fire Department’s 9/11 Memorial.

Join the Hauppauge Fire Department Explorers Program!

The Hauppauge Fire Department is looking for young members of the community to join the Hauppauge Fire Department’s Explorers Program, Post 660. You must be 14-17 years of age and reside in the Hauppauge Fire District. 

This is a great way to start your volunteer firefighting career as a member of the Hauppauge Fire Department. Once you reach the age of 18, you can formally apply for membership in the Hauppauge Fire Department as a Class “A” Firefighter. 

As a member of the Explorers, you will have the opportunity to train and get a behind the scenes look at how the Hauppauge Volunteer Fire Department works. This training will give you a head start on the training you would receive with the department and with the Suffolk County Fire Academy if you become an official member of the Hauppauge Fire Department. 

As an Explorer you will receive specific training, both classroom and hands-on instruction, in basic firefighting skills including how to properly wear firefighting gear including the SCBA (Self Contained Breathing Apparatus), hose handling, hydrant and water supply, ladders, firefighting tools, strategy and tactics of firefighting, etc. 

Once you successfully apply for full membership in the department you become eligible for many benefits including various scholarship programs. Suffolk County offers incentives through its SERVES program to volunteer firefighters who attend Suffolk Community College. 

Volunteers under the SERVES scholarship program will be eligible to have their tuition paid in full while maintaining their membership as an active member in good standing in one of Suffolk County’s volunteer fire companies or EMS providers. There is no limitation as to the academic program the SERVES recruit can enter at any SCCC campus.

A SERVES student/volunteer must maintain volunteer activity and training levels and certain academic objectives during their course of study and must commit to a post-education service obligation of two (2) to five (5) years following the receipt of their total SERVES funding.

If you are interested, please click on the Explorers tab above.
