The City of Long Beach is located on the South Shore of Long Island, just 30 miles Northwest of New York City. Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean to its South and Reynolds Channel to the North, Long Beach is a barrier island home to 35,000 yearly residents. Known for its prestige beaches and its iconic boardwalk, Long Beach is a popular summertime tourist destination which can reach over 100,000 visitors on any given day. The city operates a 24/7 police dispatch center located within police headquarters and a 24/7 fire dispatcher center located on the 3rd floor of City Hall. The Police Department has a contingent of police officers and civilian personnel who work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Fire Department is comprised of a uniformed force and volunteers who work in conjunction with one another year-round. Together, both departments work to protect and serve The City By The Sea.
In the days following October 29th, 2012 (Super Storm Sandy), New Yorkers learned a number of things: We learned that our spirit is continuously unwavering and that we are capable of unyielding compassion and philanthropy. We also now know that there is no denying that we are subject to the very worst that Mother Nature has to offer. Above all things, we’ve learned that we are vulnerable. We’ve learned that from child, to business owner to first responder, there is much and more that we can do and learn to prepare ourselves for the unexpected and the extraordinary.
