TERRYVILLE FIRE DEPARTMENT
MONTHLY ALARM TOTALS
The Port Jefferson Station-Terryville Fire Department was officially went into service on August 1, 1950 with one of the founders, Harold Hoxie as Chief of Department. The newly chartered department answered its first alarm, a brush fire, in August of 1950.
The Terryville Fire Department is a volunteer fire department which was organized in 1950. Our mission is to save lives, suppress and control fires, and provide services such as EMS, rescue, fire prevention and education and other activities as deemed in the best interest of the fire department and/or the citizens of our community.
We are comprised of active, lifetime, honorary members. Our active membership consists of approximately 100 interior firefighters, exterior firefighters, and fire police personnel.
The Terryville Fire Department operates out of three stations and serves the hamlets of Port Jefferson Station and Terryville on the north shore of central Suffolk County, NY.
Last year, the Terryville Fire Department responded to over 3000 alarms. As each year goes by, our call volume increases and we respond to many more locations than the prior year. We are asking for your help in our effort to preplan our response in the event we are called to your home or business for an emergency.
If you are looking for a career in either firefighting or emergency services, volunteering with the Terryville Fire Department is a wonderful place to begin. While volunteer firefighters and EMTs are just that, volunteers, the members will tell you that the free training that they received helped them start their career in the field of emergency services.
