Chestnut Ridge has a unique territory which can create numerous challenges. Since we are in an area where there are no fire hydrants, we rely on streams, ponds, and underground tanks to supply water to the fireground.
Chestnut Ridge is home to S.O.R.T. (Special Operations Response Team). The S.O.R.T.50 vehicle carries a plethora of equipment for mass casualty and large-scale incidents as well as supplies for incidents involving an "active threat" or hostage situations.
