The Huntington Fire Department is manned by dedicated volunteers that respond to emergency calls received seven (7) days a week, twenty-four (24) hours a day. Their primary mission is to protect the lives and property of the residents of the Huntington Fire District.
The equipment, headquarters, supplies, etc. needed by these volunteers are paid for by your tax dollars under the management of the Huntington Fire District. But what is a fire district? A fire district is a municipal corporation, governed by New York State laws, and managed by five (5) unpaid Fire Commissioners, one of which is elected by district residents each year for a five-year term. All Fire Commissioners must be district residents when elected and while serving in office.
