National Fire Prevention Safety Tips

National Fire Prevention Safety Tips

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 alarm’s 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.

Don’t leave the kitchen when frying, grilling or broiling food and don’t 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 neighbor’s 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.

Deer Vehicle Safety Tips

Deer Vehicle Collisions in the Village

In the Fall and early winter months Deer sightings in the Village are common. There is an increased mobility of the local herd
during the Mating or rutting season. The rutting season lasts from early October through most of January. Unfortunately Deer Vehicle Collisions (DVCs), are also more common during this season. We have already had several accidents resulting in vehicular damage and Deer mortality. Here are some Driver Tips for DVC avoidance during the rutting season and beyond;

1. Dusk and Dawn are the most likely times of the day for a Deer to make its move across the road. Be alert at all times for movement at roadside.

2. Headlights and brights should be on for visibility.

3. Reduce your speed at night and scan the roadsides as you drive. .

4. If you see a white tailed deer there will be more than one and they will likely run into your path.

5. Deer crossing signs are there for a reason. Be especially cautious when approaching them at night or at dawn.

6. The eyes of a dear are reflective at night. If you see reflective dots of light up ahead be cautious.

7. If you do hit a deer slowly pull to the roadside to assess the situation. turn on your hazard flashers. If the deer is dead or injured call 911 to contact the village police. Call your insurance company if necessary. DVCs are usually covered under the comprehensive portion of the policy.

  • 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.
