Call Out For Volunteers!
More than 550 volunteer fire departments across New York State will open their doors and fire truck bays to local residents this weekend, Saturday, April 27 and Sunday, April 28, as part of the third annual RecruitNY statewide volunteer firefighter recruitment effort.
During RecruitNY weekend, fire departments will conduct tours of their firehouses and fire apparatus, allow visitors to try on turnout gear, and provide visitor activities and stations throughout the firehouse. Members will discuss the volunteer requirements and rewards that come with being a volunteer firefighter, as well as conduct demonstrations, answer questions, and let visitors know how to join their fire department.
