Welcome from Chief Joseph Pansini

Since the inception of the Northport Volunteer Fire Department in 1889, citizens of Northport have received a wide range of emergency and non-emergency services from the dedicated men and women protecting the Northport community. And now nearly 125 years later the fire department protecting the citizens of Northport is still doing the same thing. We provide services that range from fire suppression, hazardous materials mitigation, natural disaster response, emergency medical treatment, rescue and public fire education. All personnel train constantly with the latest technology and emergency response operations. This training involves both classroom sessions and hands-on experience. Our firefighters and EMT's are the best in the country and are extremely proud of their Fire Department. We consider your family our family. Whether you are a resident, business owner, or a visitor, our goal is to take care of you as if you were a member of our family, because you are! If you would like to become a member, come to the firehouse and request an application.

Did you know that the first fire-fighting society, was founded by Benjamin Franklin in 1736 and was called the Union Fire Company.


Who am I ?

A poem written by active Kinderhook Firefighter, Barry Knights

I am the one who comes to your home in the middle of the night when you call for me.
I am the one who responds to the car accident that you are involved in.
I am the one who faces the bitter cold at a storm related incident.
I am the one who braves the intense heat at a brush fire.
I am the one who searches for a child lost in the woods.
I am the one who performs CPR on you or your family.
I am the one who searches a pond for a missing person.
I am the one who rescues an animal from a frozen lake.
I am the one who goes into a burning building when all others are running out.
I am the one who trains constantly to save lives.
I am the one who sometimes doesn't see my family for days because of an emergency.
I am the one who is on duty seven days a week for you.
I am the one who visits your children's schools to talk about safety
I am the one who you see every day but you don't know my name.
I am the one who doesn't get paid for my service.
I am the one who is proud of what I do for you and the area I live in.
I am the one who will give my life to save yours.

Do you know who I am?

I am a volunteer!

The Fire in me Video



When you see flashing BLUE LIGHTS please PULL OVER to the right, this will only take a few seconds, but in an emergency every second counts! In New York State a vehicle with a flashing BLUE LIGHT is a volunteer emergency responder that is responding to an emergency.
BLUE LIGHTS DO NOT give these volunteers any special privileges. They are courtesy lights only. The BLUE LIGHT is to alert other drivers that the emergency responders are on their way to an emergency. It is up to the other drivers to pull over, please afford us this courtesy, it could mean the difference between life and death.
Please provide us BLUE LIGHT courtesy.
We Thank you!!!
