Alarm Company Notifications
Many alarm system installers mistakenly indicate that our residents are served by other local fire departments (such as New Hyde Park, Port Washington or Great Neck) rather than the fire department you are actually being protected by. If you receive a water bill from the Manhasset-Lakeville Water District, then please make sure your alarm company has in their system that your residence is served by the Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department. If you are unsure whether you live within the Manhasset-Lakeville Fire District, please call (516) 466-4435 to verify your address.
Many times, alarm companies will notify 911 or a different local fire department instead of contacting our dispatchers directly for alarm activations. Alarm companies notifying the incorrect agency is a very common issue we encounter, especially for residents living in Great Neck because there two other fire department that serve the Great Neck peninsula. It is very important to make sure that your alarm company knows to contact us directly at (516) 466-4411. When the incorrect agency is contacted by an alarm company, your emergency call needs to be redirected to the proper one. Notifying the incorrect agency delays any sort of response in an emergency. Making sure that you have the correct fire department name and phone number listed with your fire alarm company will save precious minutes in an emergency situation.
We urge all residents living within the Manhasset-Lakeville Fire District to call their fire alarm company today and make sure that you have the Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department listed as your fire department and (516) 466-4411 as the fire department phone number. Again, if you are unsure whether you live within the Manhasset-Lakeville Fire District, please call (516) 466-4435 to verify your address.
