In 2018 The Inwood Fire Department responded to 1,030 alarms in 2018, department officials posted on Facebook, the most runs recorded in the history of the department.  

Of those 1,030 runs, 15 were working fires in Inwood, other the other Nassau County Third Battalion communities of Cedarhurst, Hewlett, Meadowmere Park, Lawrence, Valley Stream and Woodmere; and 44 of those 1,030 were in the Silver Point protection district in Atlantic Beach.
