There are over 30,000 fire departments in the US, but only 2,000 have full-time paid staff. That means 28,000 departments rely on volunteers!
NYMFD needs you, just as much as our community needs a fire department! As our community continues to grow, with more homes and businesses, volunteers are needed more than ever. We take people from all walks of life and ability...
Not every member of a volunteer fire department runs into burning buildings. If you ever had the childhood dream of riding on a big red fire truck, but feel you just cannot walk into a fire, please still look into joining.
Volunteer departments always need people to maintain equipment and the trucks. During fires volunteer departments need extra personal for crowd control, traffic direction and even persons to run for extra supplies that may be needed at a scene.
If you ever had a childhood dream to become a firefighter, or if you just enjoy helping out your community, the New York Mills Fire Department needs you! We accept applicants from the Village of New York Mills, Town of Whitestown and Town of New Hartford. We will consider applicants who live outside our district only if they have prior volunteer or career firefighting experience
