Firefighters Needed: Recruitment Drive On April 9
Assemblyman Brian Curran encourages constituents to join a volunteer fire department
March 30, 2011

Assemblyman Brian Curran (Lynbrook – 14th A.D.) is asking the people of Lynbrook to consider becoming a firefighter. About 85 percent of firefighters in New York are volunteers, but in recent years, there has been a decline in the number of people volunteering. In an attempt to find more volunteers, the Firemen’s Association of the State of New York (FASNY) is conducting a recruitment drive on Saturday, April 9 and Sunday, April 10. On April 9, the Lynbrook fire department will offer refreshments and discuss the requirements to be a volunteer, as well as conduct demonstrations, answer questions, and let visitors know how to get involved in the fire department. The recruitment drive starts at 11am and wraps up at 2 pm at the Earle Avenue Parking Field #8. For more information call 516-599-1547.

“As a former volunteer firefighter, I understand the commitment and energy this challenging but rewarding job demands,” said Curran. “This is a great way to get involved in your community and give back.”

On April 9 and 10, local interested individuals can contact their local fire department to determine if they are participating in the open house. “Firefighting is a very worthy cause to join. It protects your family and friends and it gives you a great sense of pride. I am hopeful that many individuals will take the opportunity to go to their local open house and see what being a firefighter is all about. Fire departments can never have too many volunteers who are eager to help,” said Curran.
