The Village Police would appreciate all residents reminding any visitors and contractors coming to their homes to comply with the posted speed limit.
Also just as a reminder, in order for the Village of Nissequogue Police Department to deal with issues immediately, the 911 Operator must be notified. By activating the 911 System, the Village of Nissequogue Police Department can immediately address activities currently in progress.
The Village of Nissequogue Police Department is available to assist all residents of Nissequogue.

The Village of Nissequogue would also like to ask all residents to show their appreciation to the volunteers of our wonderful Fire Department who spend countless hours of their precious personal time providing fire and ambulance service to all residents of our village. Please take a moment to personally thank these volunteers for their dedicated service to the Village. Their annual Fund Drive Letter is attached for your information.

Install a new smoke alarm battery immediately if an alarm chirps warning that the battery is low.
Teach children what a smoke alarm sounds like and what they should do when they hear it.
Keep your fire alarm clean by vacuuming over and around it regularly. Dust and debris can interfere with the alarmís operation. Do not paint over the smoke alarm.
Move alarms farther away from the kitchen if the device is sounding nuisance alarms. Never disable it.
Keep all sources of fuel (paper, clothing, bedding and carpet and rugs) at least three (3) feet away from all heat sources when cooking or using alternative heating such as a space heater.
Donít leave the kitchen when frying, grilling or broiling food and donít leave home when cooking.
Keep matches and lighters out of the reach of children.
If a fire occurs, get out and stay out. Call the fire department from a cell phone or neighborís phone.
If smoke or fire blocks the first escape route, use a second way. If someone must exit through smoke, they should crawl low below the smoke to exit. If escaping through a closed door, feel the door before opening it. If it is warm, use a different way out.
If smoke, heat or flames block the way out, stay in the room with the door closed. If there is a phone in the room, alert the fire department to your location
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 Ėthe-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.
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.
Do you know what a bluff is? Is there a bluff on your property? The Head of the Harbor and Nissequogue Joint Coastal Management Commission (JCMC) has prepared a brochure that addresses these questions as well as other bluff issues. To review this brochure, click here.
The Village of Nissequogue is extremely concerned about protecting our beautiful Village from various pollutants which could compromise the pristine Nissequogue River. Please help our Village by reading the following suggestions provided by our Village Engineer related to Stormwater Management and related suggestions for preventing pollution. If we all work together, we can continue to enjoy the Nissequogue River for many years to come.
