The Estates Engine Company was organized by a group of concerned new homeowners in the “Lakeville Estates” development in North New Hyde Park. The organizing members felt that the community of newly built homes needed a fire company that was closer to the neighborhood and appealed to the New Hyde Park Fire District to allow them to form a new fire company. In December 1941, the Estates Hose Company was officially chartered just as the United States was entering World War II.
The Estates Engine Company currently operates a 2010 Spartan/Crimson 1750GPM Pumper as their primary apparatus. The Estates Engine Company responded to over 350 fire calls in 2016 and currently has over 40 active members. The members of Estates take part in regular fire training drills almost every Sunday morning as well as on several week nights each month. Like each company in the New Hyde Park Fire Department, the Estates Engine Company is comprised solely of volunteer men and women from the New Hyde Park area.
