ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10)–Volunteer fire departments across New York State are getting the word out early about a recruitment event happening soon. They want anyone who thinks volunteering could be a fit for them to stop on by.

Experts with the Fireman’s Association of the State of New York say volunteers make up more than 70% of the state’s fire response. Even so, volunteer numbers are dwindling.

FASNY is holding the recruitment events on the 27th and 28th of April. Find out if there’s a volunteer fire department event near you.
