Annual effort underway to recruit volunteer firefighters

April 25, 2019 07:19 AM

Volunteer fire departments around the Capital Region are getting ready for a big push this weekend to get new members. 

Getting new members has been a problem for volunteer departments for years now. 

Volunteer fire departments across the state will open their doors for "Recruit New York" weekend. It's an effort to educate people about what it takes to become a volunteer firefighter.

This is the ninth annual year for the recruiting event.
