Water Rescue

About the Water Rescue Squad


Bayport NY is located on the South Shore of Suffolk County on New York's famed Long Island and is situated along one of the busiest boating routes. 

On Bayport's west border, the Sayville Ferries shuttle passengers back and forth to the Fire Island Pines, Cherry Grove, Water Island, Sailor's Haven and Sunken Forrest.   To Bayport's East are the Ferry services to Davis Park and Watch Hill. This area is also used by boaters who choose to navigate through the Great South Bay instead of using the Fire Island and Shinnecock Inlets. Because of this Bayport routinely is called upon for water rescue related emergencies in an area twice the size of Bayport.   Additionally, Bayport responds in tandem with The Patchogue, Blue Point, Sayville and occasionally Great River Fire Departments on all Water Rescue Emergencies in the Great South Bay. 


Bayport also has within its own borders, Brown's River and the San Souci Lakes.


Members of The Bayport Fire Department who wish to be apart of the Water Rescue team go through advanced training through Team Lifeguard Systems that comprises Surface tender and Ice Rescue technician  as well as Rapid Deployment/Search and Recovery Diving, Black Water, Full Face Mask (AUGA), and Dry Suit Training. 


The Squad operates with a Custom Built 2005 Ford F-550/Marion Water Rescue Truck,  a 2000 19' Zodiac Hurricane, and a 10' Avon inflatable (attached to the Truck).
