RecruitNY Looking For Volunteer Firefighters This Weekend


This weekend, Fire Departments throughout NY are having “RecruitNY” Open House.  It’s to help increase the number of Volunteer firefighters.  I know one of the things that my Dad is most proud of, is being a volunteer firefighter.

Volunteer fire departments will open their doors and fire truck bays to local residents this weekend as part of the third annual RecruitNY statewide volunteer firefighter recruitment effort. To coincide with National Volunteer Week, fire departments will hold recruitment drives at their firehouses.

RecruitNY is designed to help increase volunteer membership which has suffered over the last few years due to various factors including the stagnant economy. 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.

The Chenango Bridge Fire Company on Kattelville Road is having their open house beginning at noon on Saturday.  They are also having a chicken BBQ.  Many local Fire Departments are having a pancake breakfast and/or chicken BBQ as part of their Open House. For more info on what your local Fire Department is doing for RecruitNY, go to  or contact your local fire department via a non-emergency phone number or its website.

If you have a chance, help out your local Fire Department this weekend.
