Tips for Fire Safety for Kids:

Prevent Your Child from Starting Fires

The U.S. Fire Administration estimates that 300 people are killed and $280 million in property is destroyed each year as the result of children playing with fire.

  • Keep matches, lighters and other ignitable substances in a secured location out of your child’s reach. Only use lighters with child-resistant features.
  • Invest in flameless candles. These candles contain a light bulb rather than an open flame, and take the danger out of your child knocking over a candle.

Help Your Child Survive a Fire

  • Install smoke alarms on every level of your home, inside bedrooms and outside sleeping areas.
  • Once a month check whether each alarm in the home is working properly by pushing the test button. 
  • Replace batteries in smoke alarms at least once a year. Immediately install a new battery if an alarm chirps, warning the battery is low.
  • Teach your children what smoke alarms sound like and what to do when they hear one.
  • Ensure that all household members know two ways to escape from every room of your home, and where to meet up outside..
  • Practice your fire escape plan at least twice a year and at different times of the day. Practice waking up to smoke alarms, low crawling and meeting outside. Make sure everyone knows how to call 9-1-1.
  • Emphasize “get out, stay out.” Only professional firefighters should enter a building that is on fire—even if other family members, pets or prized possessions are inside.
  • Use quick-release devices on barred windows and doors. Security bars without release devices can trap you in a deadly fire. If you have security bars on your windows, be sure one window in each sleeping room has a release device.
  • Consider getting escape ladders for sleeping areas on the second or third floor. Learn how to use them, and store them near the windows. 
  • Teach household members to STOP, DROP and ROLL if their clothes should catch on fire.


Making learning fun for yourself and your children!

Fire Prevention Division

Town of Smithtown Fire Marshall SealFire Prevention Laws

Fire Marshals are New York State peace officers charged with the enforcement of national, state and local fire prevention laws. Law enforcement training is provided through the Nassau and/or Suffolk County police and sheriff's academies. The Fire Marshals are certified arson investigators by the state and national fire academies and also registered by the state as fire code enforcement officials. Fire Marshals maintain other required certifications in disciplines such as hazardous materials response and handling, safety officer, incident command and emergency management.

Fire Marshals conduct code compliance and safety inspections of commercial and municipal sites. Reports are provided to administrators and owners which list items in need of corrective action. Determinations are made if businesses are required to obtain any operating permits issued by the division.


Fire Marshals respond to fire scenes to perform the investigation necessary to determine the nature of the origin and cause. While performing investigations, Fire Marshals work with the police arson squad, department of health and social service officials and other various agencies. They also respond to life safety incidents involving town properties and personnel for documentation, mitigation and corrective action. Because the town is host to one of the largest industrial parks in the country, there is concern also for hazardous material incidents. Daily, Fire Marshals gather information relative to the handling and use of such materials.

Through fire safety education programs to a variety of audiences, we have found another vital tool for the prevention of fire, and to train people how to handle emergency situations. Audiences include health care workers, children, senior citizens, civic groups and persons who are physically challenged. Training sessions are also provided to town employees in a variety of topics, including but not limited to; fire prevention, CPR, workplace hazard recognition, etc.

The ceremony was led by Chief Tom Lohmann. In addition to the swearing in of Park Ranger Christopher Gonzalez, Fire Marshal Anthony Verni, Fire Marshal Kyle McCarthy, and Investigator Brett Bailey, Chief Lohmann presented six current members of the department with awards for their exceptionalism. Deputy Director Catherine Caillat and Chief Fire Marshal Nick Kefalos were presented with Exceptional Service awards.

Bay Constable Michael Grayson was presented with the first ever Peace Officer of the Year Award.    "I want to thank each and every one of you for your service, as you answer the call and undertake the noble path of watching over this great community. I have the utmost faith and confidence in your level of professionalism, your integrity and commitment to serve the people of Smithtown. I believe that you will make this community a better and safer place, and I believe that you will make us all proud. Congratulations, be safe out there and God bless!" - Supervisor Ed Wehrheim   "To our newest hires... congratulations on completing the academy. You did so in different circumstances than most of your peers. I'm not sure how you did DT and PT while social distancing and wearing masks, but you made it work. You're coming into law enforcement during a difficult time, but you're lucky to be a part of an agency and a township that supports and loves its law enforcement. I wish you all long, successful, and most importantly safe careers." - Chief Tom Lohmann   Bay Constable Grayson joined Councilwoman Lisa Inzerillo, and Councilman Tom Lohmann in presenting the Akerberg Family with a check for $5,744, which was raised during a T-shirt fundraiser to honor Bay Constable Thomas Akerberg.

Madison Fire Marshal: False Alarms Waste Money, Compromise Safety

Governor Kathy Hochul today acknowledged and honored the 24 firefighters whose names have been added to the New York State Fallen Firefighters Memorial during an event at the Empire State Plaza to honor the memory and heroism of the brave New Yorkers who lost their lives while performing their duties in fire service.

This year's Fallen Firefighter Memorial Ceremony is honoring a total of 45 individuals, including 21 firefighters whose names were engraved on the wall in 2020, when there was no official ceremony due to COVID-19. With this year's addition, the Fallen Firefighters Memorial now honors 2,620 of New York's firefighters who lost their lives in the line of duty.

Governor Hochul issued two proclamations to honor the state's career and volunteer firefighters, marking Tuesday, Oct. 5, 2021, as Firefighter Appreciation Day and the week of Oct. 3 to 9, 2021, as Fire Prevention Week. Governor Hochul also directed that the state's landmarks be illuminated red this evening to honor the sacrifice of the firefighters whose names were added to the memorial and to recognize the service of all firefighters across the state.

Landmarks to be lit include:

One World Trade Center
Tappan Zee Bridge
Kosciuszko Bridge
The H. Carl McCall SUNY Building
State Education Building
Alfred E. Smith State Office Building
State Fairgrounds - Main Gate & Expo Center
Niagara Falls
The "Franklin D. Roosevelt" Mid-Hudson Bridge
Grand Central Terminal - Pershing Square Viaduct
Albany International Airport Gateway
The Lake Placid Olympic Jumping Complex
MTA LIRR - East End Gateway at Penn Station

The Fallen Firefighters Memorial, dedicated in 1998, honors the memory and valor of New York's fallen firefighters at the memorial each year. The memorial also pays tribute to more than 100,000 New York State active career and volunteer firefighters who put their lives on the line every day in the name of public safety.

During Fire Prevention Week, the New York State Office of Fire Prevention and Control, within the State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services, partners with local fire departments, fire service organizations, school districts, civic groups, and the National Fire Protection Association to provide information and programs to the public about the importance of fire safety awareness.

In 2019, fire departments across the state responded to approximately 1,621,000 incidents, or an average of 4,441 incidents per day, 185 incidents per hour and three incidents every minute.
