Open Your Doors!

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 RecruitNY 2016, April 23 and 24, 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.

Sign up to participate before February 15 and be entered to win the Ultimate Recruitment Tool Kit filled with more than $1,150 worth of printed materials, T-shirts and more.

Register today and encourage others to participate. Let’s continue strengthening the volunteer fire service, our departments and, most importantly, our communities together!
