Suffolk County Department of Public Works, Division of Vector Control
This group is responsible for controlling mosquito infestations that are of public health importance. VOBEC is working with this department to gain information on developing our own mosquito management plan, and educating the public about ways to minimize mosquito infestation.

Fire Island is a unique community. We are a beach resort, yet we are within a national park. We have bustling towns, yet we have long stretches of uninhabited wetlands and beaches. We necessarily interact with a number of regulatory agencies at the federal, state, and county level in order to obtain relevant information and permits.
