Yummy!! Can't wait!!
One of my favorite events
We wanted to give our community and supporters an update about the day to day operations of Chuckatuck Volunteer Fire Department. We apologize for not getting the information out sooner - we wanted a smooth transition before we announced anything to the public.
May 1st, 2017, Chuckatuck began a partnership with Suffolk Department of Fire and Rescue, to ensure that fire and EMS services in the Chuckatuck Borough, Isle of Wight/Suffolk Corridor, and surrounding areas continued to receive professional, timely emergency response.
In our last update, we announced that Suffolk would be providing 24 hour, 7 day a week career staffing in Chuckatuck. Through agreements and understandings with the City, those circumstances have changed.
Currently, and for the foreseeable future, Suffolk Fire and Rescue provides career staffing from 8am-5pm Monday-Friday only, with the exception of holidays. During nights, weekends, and holidays, Chuckatuck volunteers continue to staff a front run engine, tanker, and brush truck. During the daytime, Chuckatuck volunteers are able to staff a second run engine, as well as the brush truck and tanker.
We wanted to make it known that your Chuckatuck volunteers are still active, responding to calls on a front run apparatus, as well as supplementing the career staffing, when they are on duty.
The transition has been seamless, and Chuckatuck remains a valuable asset to the City; the relationship between the career staff and volunteers couldn't be better.
We welcome any questions or concerns - we can be reached directly through this page. As always, we continue to accept new volunteers; if you are interested, please contact any fire department member, or this page. ... See MoreSee Less
