Get Involved

There will always be a need for people who care, who help, who heal. As new tragedies shake us and new problems challenge us, we do more than fight fires. Volunteer firefighters are trained and equipped professionally to fight for and protect their communities with pride. From the birth of a nation to modern days, the volunteer fire service of the State of New York has been at its best when times are at their worst. When you join the volunteer firefighting family, you honor a great tradition of stepping up whenever and wherever help is needed while also improving yourself. 

We Teach

When you join the volunteer fire service, you learn to use the most advanced technology and tools available to protect and serve your community. 

We Train

Ordinary men and women are trained to do extraordinary things when they join the volunteer fire service. We provide free training. 

We Serve Together

Teamwork is at the center of all this training and equipment. The brother- and sisterhood of the volunteer fire service share the same basic training, rewarding experience and life changing growth that you can only find in the fire service.
