The Vigilant Fire Company is one of the most progressive volunteer fire departments for training its members in Nassau County. Each month there are at least two drills focusing on firefighting skills for all members, two drills for members with less than one year, and two drills for firemedic members.

Each firefighter must also attend the Nassau County Fire Service Academy’s Primary and Essentials of Firefighting classes totaling more than eighty hours in their first year.  Every firemedic member must take the New York State Emergency Medical Technician course which is approximately 180 hours of classroom time along with 10 hours of hands on field training.  

Our commitment to training is second to none as we strive to provide the best fire protection and medical services to the residents of Great Neck.
