Letter from the Halesite Chief: Recruitment 2017 Open House 4/30/17
Have you always wondered who makes up the Halesite Volunteer Fire Department? Well it’s regular people just like you! Most of us had no prior training and we were just members of our community who wanted to give back. Our 2017 recruitment drive is now under way, and we still need a few good neighbors 18 and older who are willing to help their community with fire and/or rescue services. We are especially in need of volunteers who are around during the daytime.
“Why volunteer?” There is a tremendous feeling of pride when you come to another person’s aid during a time of need. You can join to ride the ambulance, be a firefighter, or both. No experience is necessary. We will train and equip you to provide these services.
For more information, attend our Open House event set up exclusively for people who want to know more. It will be held at the firehouse this Sunday, April 30th, from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. During the visit, local residents will meet with current volunteers, take a tour of the firehouse, and have the opportunity to check out actual firefighting and rescue equipment.
If you plan to stop by, please give us a call at 631-427-1910. If you can’t make it to our Open House, call anyway; we can set up a better time for a one on one meeting.
Chief of Department
