To our Community:
The Hauppauge Fire Department is currently in the middle of its annual appeal to our residents for the 2021 Fund Drive.
We sent a letter out this past January explaining our need to resume this after not doing it in 2020 because of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Since re-starting our fund drive we have received numerous donations and thank everyone who has helped so far.
As of today, the Hauppauge Fire Department will be sending out a second mailing as a reminder to residents who have yet to donate. The letter is below as a PDF.
Again, we thank our entire community for its continued support of your Volunteer Fire Department. We are stand ready to help, no matter what the call might be.
On Sunday morning, April 25th, 2021, Girl Scout Troop 526 came to Hauppauge Fire Department Headquarters to say thank you to the members who volunteer. They handed out 'COVID Angels' that they all hand crafted and had them blessed. They were kind enough to give each member one as a thank you for our service to the Hauppauge Community and that we stay safe. We cannot thank them enough for their generous gift.
At approximately 11:04 A.M., the Hauppauge Fire Department was activated for a structural fire alarm at 460 Hoffman Lane. First arriving units 1st. Assistant Chief Ken Furuno and Fire Marshal Greg Gottlieb saw heavy smoke from the home. All residents were safely evacuated. 1st. Assistant Chief Furuno transmitted a working fire through Smithtown Dispatch to all incoming units and asked for mutual aid from the Smithtown, Nesconset, Central Islip and Lakeland Fire Departments. Medical/Ambulance support was given by the Central Islip Vol. Ambulance Corp. Heavy fire was found in the 2nd. floor bedroom of this large home and was extending into the attic. An aggressive interior attack was put in place and the fire was knocked down. Extensive overhaul was initiated soon afterwards to extinguish the rest of the fire. Hauppauge Apparatus on scene were: 1st. Assistant Chief Ken Furuno, 2nd. Assistant Chief Christopher Crean, Engines 3-8-1, 3-8-4, 3-8-13, 3-8-14, Ladder 3-8-7, Heavy Rescue 3-8-9, Fire Marshal 3-8-40. There were no injuries reported and the fire is currently under investigation by the Suffolk County Arson Squad. All Hauppauge Units were back in service by 13:15 hours.
We are looking for young members of Hauppauge who are interested on a future as a Volunteer Firefighter to help the community in which we all live. Below, please find the PDF application that can be printed and filled out. We look forward to hearing from you.
