Established in 1989

The Firemedic Squad was established by the Board of Fire Commissioners in 1989. This unit is composed of members of the Department who have attained the New York State Certifications and volunteer to serve in and operate the specially equipped vehicle provided by the Fire District. This duty is in addition to their regular company functions. The unit pictured contains the most modern emergency portable equipment available which include the ability to communicate with the Nassau University Medical Center doctors who monitor conditions and give orders on what treatment to administer. When the patient arrives at the hospital, the doctor and staff are prepared to continue the treatment with no delay.
