Organized 1947, Dix Hills operates from 3 stations providing Fire, Rescue & ALS level EMS protection to an affluent residential community. Encompassing 26 square miles including the high speed Long Island Expressway, Northern State Parkway, Deer Park Avenue & Commack Road, 150 volunteers respond to over 2,800 alarms annually. While primarily a bedroom community, Dix Hills certainly has had its’ share of notable incidents including a working fire at the home of rap artist 50 Cent, a water rescue involving horses trapped in a pool, an occupant pinned under a home elevator and frequent serious motor vehicle accidents (many requiring heavy rescue & Med-Evac) along the many high speed roadways within the district.
