The Huntington Manor Fire District will be upgrading security cameras at its buildings through a $90,000 grant procured by State Sen. Jim Gaughran.
The new cameras are expected to be installed in the next three weeks around the exteriors of the three buildings and some interior spaces, and replace 20-year-old analog cameras. The cameras, monitored by the Fire District, will run 24/7 and can be used in coordination with local law enforcement.
Chris Fusaro, chairman of the Board of Huntington Manor Fire District, said “This funding is vital to helping protect the greater Huntington Station community. These cameras will be an invaluable tool towards ensuring the safety of our fire station and the brave men and women who serve in the Huntington Manor Fire District. We would like to thank Senator Gaughran for his support of our first responders and look forward to continuing to work together on behalf of Huntington.”
Gaughran said, “This critical funding will improve public safety within the Huntington Station community and aid local law enforcement in their mission of deterring crime and responding to criminal behavior. I am proud to secure this $90,000 for the Huntington Manor Fire District to install security cameras. My top priority is the safety of our residents and community and these cameras will be an invaluable tool towards that.”
In 2019, Gaughran secured $180,000 for the Town of Huntington to install additional cameras and upgrade its existing camera system throughout the Huntington Station Business Improvement District.
The district has three buildings, two on New York Avenue and a third on Jericho Turnpike.
