On February 2, 2021 the Smithtown Fire Department received a notification from Newsday that they had handled a complaint from a member of our community regarding a Blue Line Flag placed on our Rescue truck. In response to this notification the issue was discussed, and it was determined that the best course of action for all parties involved was to have the flag replaced with an American Flag. This was a difficult decision to make as our steadfast support of our law enforcement partners has not changed. While we understand that this garners strong feelings on both sides of our community, we wish to focus on the life and property protection we provide to the residents of Smithtown.
