A Call for Volunteer Firefighters

By Fox 40 Staff.
Broome County officials and local fire companies are looking for volunteer firefighters.

Officials gathered at the Endwell Fire Department Wednesday morning to promote Volunteer Firefighter Recruitment Day which will be held this Saturday. The recruitment day is an opportunity to gain a needed boost in volunteer levels. Broome County Fire Coordinator Brett Chellis says that if you're thinking about volunteering, be sure to visit a local firehouse and explore the opportunity.

Brett Chellis, Broome County Fire Coordinator said "When I was 16 years old I thought about it a lot and I just fell in love with the fire service almost immediately because of the comradery that there is..brotherhood, sisterhood you know everybody working together."

There are twenty nine firehouses in Broome, Tioga and Chenango counties that will host an open house for recruitment day. For a complete list you can go to southerntierfire.com
