Farmingville, NY - Recently, Supervisor Ed Romaine and Councilman Dan Panico were given a tour of the new headquarters of Mastic Beach Ambulance Company currently under construction at 343 Main Street. The 18,000-square-foot building will house five drive-through vehicle bays, instead of only three one-way bays in the current facility, to allow for more efficient emergency response and equipment maintenance operations. The drive-through design of the bays improves the efficiency and safety of operations by allowing the company members to respond onto both Main Street and Diana Drive. The new building will accommodate up to 15 vehicles and will feature more updated EMT volunteer housing, equipment storage, and decontamination facilities. The Mastic Beach Ambulance Headquarters is expected be open and operational by Fall 2018.
The new Mastic Beach Ambulance Company headquarters property once served as home to a long vacant supermarket which became a source of blight in the community. The Town acquired the property in 2016 and subsequently demolished the building, which paved the way for construction. The new headquarters will better serve the ambulance company’s members, with a variety of additional amenities including more training rooms, but even more importantly, will help these volunteer members to serve Mastic Beach residents more efficiently.
Supervisor Romaine said, “This construction is moving very well and the men and women of the Mastic Beach Ambulance Company will soon have a new headquarters that will help them do their job more efficiently. I commend all the trades that are working on this project for doing quality work and keeping the job on schedule.”
Councilman Panico said, “What has been more than a decade in the making for the members of the Mastic Beach Ambulance Company is coming together beautifully. This building will meet the needs of our ambulance company, will put a 24/7 presence on Neighborhood Road, and is the first brand new building for the area in decades.”
Design of the new headquarters building was performed by LKMA Associates and Nelson and Pope. Construction is led by Stalco Construction, with Premiere Heat serving as the HVAC contractor. WHM Plumbing is the plumbing contractor and Eldor Contracting is the electrical contractor.
