Fire departments open doors, welcome RecuitNY weekend

Fire Departments across the region will open their doors to area residents this weekend, so they can learn about what it takes to be a volunteer firefighter in their community as part of the sixth annual RecruitNY statewide initiative. Over the last several years, it has been very tough for many fire departments throughout New York State to recruit and retain volunteers for a variety of reasons. Like most volunteer fire departments, local agencies need to bolster its emergency responder numbers so it can continue to provide the optimum level of protection for its residents. Events will include open houses and other activities.
