“A Great New Year Resolution”

Consider becoming a Volunteer Firefighter

The nation faces a shortage of volunteer firefighters.  As such, our local communities are in need of men and women who have that special desire to learn and apply skills critical to saving life and property.  As a volunteer firefighter you can become that person bringing aid to suppress a fire, extricate a victim of an auto accident, and rescue a lost or injured person.  In addition to mastering skills and belonging to a unique group of emergency responders, there are many valuable benefits the local fire company provides its members.

The Copake Fire Company would like to recruit new members to join their team of emergency responders and invite folks to call 518-329-4161 extension 5 or email chief@copakefire.org or stop in and see them at the Fire Station at 390 Center Hill Road to learn more about becoming a member.
