Greetings from a snowy Saltaire, and Best Wishes, to All who access this updated site, for a Healthy and Prosperous New Year!

Lots of news to report from the Administrative side of the Saltaire Volunteer Fire Company!

Our New Website is up and running. We will try to make this site as user friendly as possible for the Village residents and the surrounding towns and hamlets.  Your suggestions, comments, questions and applications on this web site are greatly appreciated and can be submitted to
~Dispatch Room Radio System Upgrade~
Work will soon commence on upgrading our antiquated dispatch and radio communications system, thanks in major part to those of you in the Village who generously contributed to our requests for the financing to make this possible.
The system will enable crisper and more professional communication between and among, the SVFC, the County Fire & Medical Dispatchers, other Fire Island Fire Departments, as well as other Public Safety agencies allowing for improved communications and faster response times to fire and medical emergencies.
~SVFC Engaging in a Membership Drive~
Both FF1 and EMT Members are needed. This effort is and will continue to be, a major initiative for the Fire Company to re-introduce itself to the Saltaire Community.  Learn more by going to Join the SVFC or emailing
~SVFC Working with the Village on Financing a New Pumper~
A new pumper is a necessity. In the meantime, volunteers who can drive a stick shift are welcome to apply for Firefighter Certification to drive our 27 year old, secondary pumper.
Here’s to seeing you in 3-4 months!
