WELCOME to the VILLAGE OF OCEAN BEACH
Welcome to the website of the Village of Ocean Beach Environmental Commission (VOBEC). The Incorporated Village of Ocean Beach is the unofficial capital of the half mile wide by 32 mile long barrier beach of Fire Island, just five miles south of Long Island, New York. Fire Island is a unique place. We are a summer resort, but we are also a national park, the Fire Island National Seashore. We have 17 communities, yet we also have long stretches of beautiful beaches, uninhabited wetlands and wilderness areas.

VOBEC hopes that you find our website useful in obtaining information on recycling, finding out about upcoming VOBEC events, glancing at our Fun Facts and tips on what you can do about the environment, and understanding the eco-system of our barrier island.

If you don't find what your looking for, send us an email at VOBEC.FI@gmail.com.
We'd love to hear your feedback and suggestions!

MOSQUITO UPDATE!
Suffolk County Vector Control (SCVC) has reported that, due to unseasonably cold, wet winter, it is expected that there will be a bumper crop of mosquitoes this season.

In early May, SCVC visited Ocean Beach. As is their practice, they took water samples from standing water around the Village, including from around homes. The results indicated a lot of larvae in the samples, and consequently they are expecting an especially bad season. They are taking a strong proactive stance and have begun treating the Village on Tuesdays and will continue throughout the season.
