East Hampton Fire Department
The East Hampton Fire Department provides protection to the residents, business owners, and visitors alike of the Village of East Hampton and the Town of East Hampton. The Village owns the Fire Department, its equipment and facilities. The Village Trustees are the Fire Commissioners.
The East Hampton Fire Department is an all-volunteer department located on the Southeast fork of Suffolk County, New York.
