If you've ever thought about becoming a volunteer firefighter, this weekend is a good time to learn more about why you should!

This weekend is Volunteer Firefighter Recruitment weekend in New York State.  Fire companies across the state will be opening their doors to show you what becoming a volunteer firefighter is all about.

Aside from helping out your community with an incredibly important job, there are tons of benefits to becoming a member of your local fired company.  So this weekend fire departments will be giving tours of their firehouses and fire apparatus You might even be able to try on gear, and check out other activities and stations throughout the firehouse. Members will be on hand to discuss the volunteer requirements and rewards that come with being a volunteer firefighter. They will also conduct demonstrations, answer questions, and give you everything you need to know about joining the department.
