The Fire Chiefs Council of Suffolk County started in 1945 and has been serving the interests of the Fire Service of Suffolk County and their Communities with respect to quality Fire and Emergency Medical Service.
The Council represents the Chiefs, Assistant Chiefs and Ex-Chiefs of the 109 Volunteer Fire Departments and Companies from the 10 Townships in Suffolk County.
The purpose of this organization is to further the interests of the Fire and Emergency Medical Service in Suffolk County and to further all possible improvements to these services with respect to personnel, equipment, structure, operations and finance.
The Council meets the 2nd Friday of every other month (January,March,May, July,September and November) at host Fire Departments across the County. A guest speaker is presented at these meetings on pertinent issues and concerns affecting the Volunteer Fire Service.

The proceeds go to our Scholarship Fund and two $1,000 scholarships are awarded each year to graduating high school seniors of fire service families and one $1,000 scholarship is given to an active volunteer firefighter for continuing education.
The Council also presents a Convention Seminar each year on a current subject of importance to the Fire Service of Suffolk County.
The Council is an active member of the various State and National Fire Service Organizations to ensure the concerns and the interests of the Suffolk County Fire Service are considered.
