Rye FD Looks to Add Recruits This Sunday

The Rye Fire Department is holding an open house this Sunday to add to their current stable of 40 volunteer fire fighters. Here are the details:

RYE FIRE DEPARTMENT TO PARTICIPATE IN 3RD ANNUAL STATEWIDE “RECRUITNY” WEEKEND TO HELP
RECRUIT NEW VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTERS

Recruitment Open House to be Held at Rye Fire Department HQ on April 28

(Rye, NY) The Rye 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.  The Rye Fire Department needs to bolster our first responder membership to continue to provide the optimum level of protection for our residents! We have been volunteering since 1886 to secure the safety of Rye.

As part of RecruitNY, on Sunday, April 28 between 12:00pm and 3:00pm, the Rye Fire Department, located at 15 Locust Ave in Rye, NY will join fire departments all across the state 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.

Throughout the open house, The Rye Fire Department will conduct tours of the station and apparatus, allow visitors to try on firefighting gear, and provide activities throughout the firehouse for visitors. The fire department will discuss what it means to be a volunteer, as well as conduct demonstrations and answer questions.

General requirements for membership include any man or woman aged 18 and older who live or work in the City of Rye or a surrounding community and have the desire to participate in fire and/or emergency activities.  No training or fire service experience is necessary for membership as The Rye Fire Department will sponsor all necessary training. 

For area residents looking for more information, visit www.ryefire.com, call the volunteer info line at 914-315-0088 or email info@ryefire.com.
