• Bayville Fund Drive

    WE APPRECIATE YOUR HELP: The Bayville Fire Company is a volunteer organization.  We routinely seek donations from the communities we serve throughout the year and with our annual fund drive.  Your generous assistance has helped us to provide training for members, offer totally free ambulance service to the community, and routinely upgrade equipment.  Our ambulance is staffed by volunteers who are NY State Certified in Advanced and Basic Life Support skills. Your contributions also help with our fire safety programs.

    All contributions are tax deductible. The Bayville Fire Company is tax-exempt, not-for-profit 501 (c)(4) organization.

    WE ARE THERE FOR YOU: For 365 days a year - 24 hours a day, the officers and members of the Bayville Fire Company proudly serve the communities of Bayville Centre Island and Mill Neck - as we have for the past 87 years. We protect you from real-life emergencies. Fire, of course, but we are also the first-on-the-scene for medical calls, auto accidents, gas leaks and carbon monoxide leaks. We are a vital part of the regional disaster planning and any other unforeseen event. Our members are certified to National Incident Management Standards.

    COMMUNITY VOLUNTEERS: We are proudly to inform you that our fire company will be led by Chief David Caso, First Assistant Chief Joseph Rodgers and Second Assistant Chief Marc Bilbrey. This year, we are on pace to respond to over 700 calls for service. This was compared to approximately 500 calls last year and with fewer members. We recently instituted a new Fire Police Unit at the fire company, made up of experienced ex-chiefs and company officers. It will allow us to keep residents at a safe distance from emergency scenes, to inform them of what is happening and to work with Police Units to handle traffic control. Members are state certified and have peace officer status when directed by the Chief’s office.


    EQUIPMENT: Recently, we've sold our ladder truck #502 and used the proceeds to assist with the purchase of a new ladder truck with 107ft ladder for the new #502. This truck will greatly enhance our capabilities at house fires to reach the house from the driveway in the estates of Centre Island & Mill Neck. The true purpose of this new ladder truck that will serve our residents for many years. It's an honor for us to announce this vehicle will be ready and on the road by October 2017.

    TRAINING: Since emergencies can happen at any time, our members often answer the alarm in the middle of the night. They also have families, jobs and personal commitments. As a courtesy to the community, our whistle system does not operate after 10 p.m., unless there is a major fire. Please yield the right of way whenever you see a flashing blue light. We drill at the firehouse, practice water rescues at our beaches and motor vehicle accident training at Center Island Beach. We also work with the Seawanhaka Yacht Club, United Cerebral Palsy Center and Rosewood on aided cases and emergency evacuations. We also train with our surrounding Fire Companies and at Nassau County Fire Service Academy to update and refine our skills.

    FIRE PREVENTION: We have an annual open house where residents can come in, meet the members and be given oral and written information on our programs. We have activities for adults and children and special guest appearances. Our members also visit schools in the area and explain fire safety to the children and teachers, and the importance of having an emergency plan in place with their parents and caregivers. Members are also available on Sunday mornings, in case you have any questions. We are here for you and your families 24/7, 365 days a year.
