The Bellport Fire Department Can Be Counted On For A Lot More Than Putting Out Fires!
again, with the help of the Bellport Fire Department, Santa visited children
in our area giving out candy canes as he rode from street to street. This is
just one of the many services performed by the Bellport Fire Department each
Most people don't realize that programs like this aren't paid for by the taxes paid to the Fire Department each year. Those taxes go strictly to the costs involved fighting fires. Instead, programs like Santa's Candy Cane Run are paid for by donations made to the Fire Department and the Fund Raisers the Fire Department runs from time to time. Great work Bellport Fire Department guys and gals!!!

Santa And The Bellport Fire Department Visit Mr. Smith
giving out candy canes and visiting the children in our community, Santa
and members of the Bellport Fire Department took time out to visit with
Robert Smith at Bellehaven. It seems Mr. Smith is a real Fire Department
fan. He was given a plaque by Chief Dane Hartmann and Second Chief Jason
Crane. The plaque will now hang in Mr. Smith’s room at Bellehaven. This
is truly what this season is all about, bringing joy to someone else.
Brush Fire Safety Tips
With winter behind us, we are now starting to enjoy some warm weather.
Warm, breezy spring weather means dry vegetation that can result in
brush fires that burn and spread quickly. Burning embers from brush
fires can be carried on the wind causing multiple fires. Many homeowners
are tempted to try extinguishing fires themselves before calling the
fire department. If you should spot a brush fire your best action is to
notify the Bellport Fire Department immediately by dialing
911. Homeowners living in proximity to woodland areas should take some
landscaping and home maintenance steps to ensure safer surroundings.

Remembering the March 8, 1963 Fire at Bellport High School
An entire school building
was reduced to ruins. Miraculously, no lives were lost. Volunteer fire
fighters, school staff, emergency response teams, BMH medical staff, the
Suffolk Country Police Department, and scores of volunteers who rushed
to the scene helped avoid an even greater tragedy.
