Point Breeze, organized in 1910, is part of the Breezy Point Cooperative – a four-square-mile private beachfront community. When the department was established, the nearest career firehouse was over five miles away. Today, Engine 329 is three miles away.

Today, the department’s 75 members respond to 125 incidents, 9,000 full-time residents living in 3,000 dwellings. The summer influx brings in approximately 3,000 additional residents.
