Welcome to RecruitNY 2017, a great opportunity to support the fire service and engage your community. Here’s where you’ll find all the resources and information you need to host a successful open house. Sign up your department now to get started!
A vital function for every department, recruitment keeps the New York State volunteer fire service alive.
That’s why RecruitNY was created. After years of decline, FASNY’s annual RecruitNY weekend has helped add more than 20,000 to the ranks of fire departments across the state.
That’s why this website was created. Here you’ll find all the resources you need to recruit not just during the annual RecruitNY weekend, but year round.
When your department participates in RecruitNY, you’re contributing to a much greater cause. FASNY backs RecruitNY weekend with these customizable promotional resources, high-profile sponsorships and media coverage that reaches millions across the state and even the country.
Even events that don’t draw the desired foot traffic or immediate sign ups make a difference. Your commitment raises the profile of the volunteer fire service and the essential work we do in our communities.
Let’s continue strengthening the volunteer fire service, our departments and, most importantly, our communities together!
Check out open house events to find out how you can help your community. Volunteer fire departments need more than firefighters. You can use your skills to benefit the volunteer fire service in a number of ways. Visit your local department to see how you can truly make a difference.
Tap into the next generation of volunteers.
