The NANUET FIRE DEPARTMENT will open its doors
to area residents, so they can learn about what it takes to be a volunteer
firefighter in their community as part of the fourth annual Recruit NY 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, the NANUET FIRE DEPARTMENT needs
to bolster its emergency responder numbers so it can continue to provide the
optimum level of protection for its residents.
As part of Recruit NY, on Saturday, April 26 and Sunday, April 27, the NANUET FIRE DEPARTMENT located at 7 Prospect Street, Nanuet will join volunteer fire departments all across New York State at their respective firehouses for a unified recruitment drive. Not only will Recruit NY be an opportunity to highlight the duties and rewards that come with being a volunteer firefighter, it will also raise public awareness about the need for volunteers.
Between the hours of 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM, members of the NANUET FIRE DEPARTMENT will be available to discuss the requirements on how to become a volunteer firefighter, as well as answer any questions or concerns you may have. We invite everyone age 16 and older to come on out and join us for this unique recruitment day at our firehouse. We hope our recruitment day will inspire area residents to join our fire service family.
