The Gerrittsen Beach Fire Department is opening its doors to area residents, so they can learn about what it takes to be a volunteer firefighter in their community, as part of an initiative brought to you by FASNY with a program called Recruit NY. 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 Gerrittsen Beach Fire Department needs to bolster its emergency responder numbers, so it can continue to provide the optimum level of protection for its residents. Now more than ever, they need more of their neighbors joining their fire department.

On Saturday, April 21th & Sunday, April 22th between 1pm – 4pm, the Gerrittsen Beach Fire Department located 52 Seba Avenue will join in an initiative with volunteer fire departments all across the state at their respective firehouses for a unified recruitment drive, as part of National Volunteer Week 2012. Not only will Recruit NY 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. The hope is that a collaborative effort among volunteer fire departments statewide will turn the declining number of volunteer firefighters around.

We are coming to an end of our annual Fund Drive, Golden donor this year is $85.00 and every donation counts towards our fundraising efforts. Please send whatever you can as soon as possible. If you have already donated this year, thank you. You will be receiving your fund drive sticker in July, after our fund drive is closed for 2012.
