Long Beach Fire Department

1 West Chester Street

The Long Beach Fire Department, organized in 1910, bears a proud history as one of Long Island's busiest fire departments. The members of the Long Beach Fire Department are responsible for providing fire protection and EMS services to the City of Long Beach, Village of Atlantic Beach, and East Atlantic Beach Fire District. Located less than 10 miles southeast of John F. Kennedy airport, and directly west of historic Jones Beach, the City of Long Beach has long been known as a premier seaside community. In addition to protecting more than 3.5 miles of ocean beach, the members of the LBFD protect the largest community of low-rise and high-rise multiple dwellings in Nassau County.

The organization of the LBFD is comprised of 7 volunteer companies and 1 uniformed company. In total, the members of the LBFD respond to over 1200 fire alarms, and over 3,100 EMS runs annually. In order to accommodate the very large volume of calls for assistance each day, the fire department operates a 24 hour fire alarm dispatch office. The fire alarm dispatch office is responsible for the communication of all alarms and the real-time monitoring of over 50 automatic fire alarms.

The men and women of the Long Beach Fire Department work hard every day to provide the residents and visitors of Long Beach with the best possible emergency response possible. The members take pride in being a part of a fire department with a rich history and a true commitment to protecting life and property.
