Hurricane Safety Tips

The following are some suggestions provided by FEMA to prepare your home in case of a hurricane
Build an emergency kit and make a family communication plan
Know your community hurricane evacuation routes and how to find higher ground. Determine where you would go and how you would get there if you needed to evacuate.
Make plans to secure your property.
Cover all of your home’s windows. Permanent storm shutters offer the best protection for windows. A second option is to board up windows with 5/8” marine plywood, cut to fit and ready to install. Tape does not prevent windows from breaking.
Install straps or additional clips to securely fasten your roof to the frame structure. This will reduce roof damage.
Be sure trees and shrubs around your home are well trimmed so they are more wind resistant.
Clear loose and clogged rain gutters and downspouts.
Reinforce your garage doors; if wind enters a garage it can cause dangerous and expensive structural damage.
Bring in all outdoor furniture, decorations, garbage cans and anything else that is not tied down.
Determine how and where to secure your boat.
Install a generator for emergencies.

Bicycle/Pedestrian Safety Tips

The Village of Nissequogue would like all residents to be able to safely enjoy our beautiful Village by car, on a bicycle or as a pedestrian. Drivers must remain alert at all times to bicycle and pedestrian traffic and always drive within recommended speed limits as they travel on Village roads.

Bicycle riding is an enjoyable and healthy way to take advantage of our pristine Village environment. Before venturing out, make sure that your bicycle is in good working order with properly inflated tires and working brakes. Always wear a properly fitted bicycle helmet and keep two hands on the handlebars at all times. Bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities to follow the rules of the road. Bicyclists should ride on the right side of the road in the same direction as other vehicles. Riders must obey all traffic signs, signals and lane markings. Cyclists should ride in a straight line, single-file as close to the side of the road as possible.

Enjoying our Village as a pedestrian allows our residents to take full advantage of the true beauty of our surroundings. Pedestrians should walk or run single-file facing traffic and as close to the side of the road whenever possible. Make it easier for drivers to see you. Carry a flashlight in low visibility areas.

Both cyclists and pedestrians should follow these same safety tips. Stay alert at all times and refrain from using headphones or hand-held devises so that you can use your eyes and ears to avoid dangerous situations. If possible, wear neon, fluorescent, reflective or bright colors especially when traveling during low visibility times such as dawn, dusk, inclement weather or at night. Always try to be seen and remember that just because you can see a driver that doesn’t mean the driver can see you.

The Village of Nissequogue wants our residents to safely enjoy all of our Village roads.
Reminder: 2014/2015 Village Taxes must be postmarked by Tuesday, July 1st.

  • Village of Nissequogue

    Incorporated in 1926, the Village of Nissequogue is located in Suffolk County on the North Shore of Long Island about 50 miles east of New York City. The geographic area of the Village is 3.6 square miles. It is bounded on the west by the Nissequogue River, on the north by the Long Island Sound, on the east by Stony Brook Harbor and on the south by the Village of Head-of-the-Harbor and the Town of Smithtown.

    The Village of Nissequogue is the site of the original settlement of the Town of Smithtown. Richard Smith, the Patentee, founded the town in 1665 on land deeded to him by Lion Gardiner and Wyandanch, who was the Sachem of the Montauks.

    Within the Village borders, there is Delafield Woods, Butler Huntington Woods and the David Weld Nature Conservancy which contain many nature trails where residents and visitors can view many different native trees as well as other indigenous flora. Along the Nissequogue River Basin, Short Beach and Stony Brook Harbor are found many unique marshlands that are home to a host of native marsh grasses as well as a number of large and small seabirds.

    Many species of birds nest within the Village. These include herons, egrets, ducks, ospreys, Canada geese, owls and red-tail hawks. Woodland animals such as the red fox, raccoon, opossum, cottontail and deer are common sightings.

    The Village is entirely residential. Within the Village, there are no industrial or commercial installations or uses permitted except agricultural and horticultural uses or special uses which may be permitted and regulated by the Village.

    Joint Coastal Management Commission

    joint-costal.jpg The Joint Coastal Management Commission (JCMC) is a joint commission with the Village of Head of the Harbor. The Local Waterfront Revitalization Programs (LWRP) articulates objectives for the preservation, protection and proactive development of the coastal environment. This commission is charged with making recommendations regarding the LWRP to the Village Boards. It is also concerned with water flow and drainage as impacted by development or construction.

    Public Service Enterprise Group (PSE&G)

    Effective January 1, 2014, Public Service Enterprise Group (PSE&G)is now responsible for all electric service outages which were previously handled by LIPA. In the event of an outage, customers should call PSEGLI at 800-490-0075. Customers can also quickly report outages by texting "OUT" to 773454. Registration is required to use this service. Remember to charge your mobile electronic devices so you can stay connected in the unlikely event of an outage.

    PSEG has implemented an enhanced tree trimming program for 2014. According to PSEG, trees growing near power lines significantly increase the chance of power outages posing a threat to system reliability and public safety. Crews will be in the Village of Nissequogue shortly to begin this tree trimming program. If you experience any issues during this tree trimming program, please contact PSEG directly at 1-800-490-0075.
