Congratulations to the members of FASNY’s Recruitment and Retention Committee for being proactive and planning a statewide recruitment effort for April 9 and 10, 2011.
They’re promoting the simple concept of each volunteer fire department hosting an open house that weekend and have backed it up with the marketing and planning tools to make your local efforts successful.
From sample press releases to web banners and everything in between, they’ve thought of it all and posted it to a single resource center at www.recruitny.org. I know we’ll be promoting it and encouraging FD participation in our county and I hope you will too, even if you don’t live in New York.
Check out the site and the resources and get ready to open your firehouse to hopefully what is a long line of prospective members of your volunteer fire department.
