Safety Officer Squad
The East Meadow Fire Department Safety Officer Squad was formed in 1989 as a result of mandates by the National Fire Protection Association requiring all fire services agencies to have designated Safety Officers. The job of the Safety Officer is to respond to all fire department emergencies, and carefully monitor, and evaluate emergency procedures at a fire or EMS incident.
