Recruit NY

The Lake Shore 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 third annual RecruitNY 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 Lake Shore 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 RecruitNY, on Saturday, April 27 and Sunday, April 28 between 10am and 1pm, the Lake Shore Fire Department will join volunteer fire departments all across the state at their respective firehouses for a unified  recruitment drive, as part of National Volunteer Week 2013. Not only will RecruitNY 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.

Come down to Lake Shore and meet some of your local Firefighters and see how you can help your community. We will be at the fire houses located at 35 E. Manitou Rd and 545 Ling Rd on Saturday the 27th from 10am- 1pm. Then on Sunday the 28th we will be at the fire houses located at 35 E. Manitou Rd and 1 Long Pond Rd between the hours of 10am and 1pm.

All are welcome.
