Wendelville Volunteer Fire Company responds 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and is always recruiting new members. There is always a need for new members to join and learn what we do and love doing it. If you want to be an interior firefighter, an exterior firefighter or an EMT, we can help you become any or all of them!
All of the equipment you need will be supplied by the company. Similarly, all necessary training is either done in-house or provided through State Fire Instructors at classes held throughout the county. All costs for fire or EMS training are covered by the fire company. You can take as many classes as you want to take!
Wendelville Volunteer Fire Company offers a Length Of Service Awards Program (LOSAP) which allows active members to accumulate points towards an actual retirement program to assist them later in life.
Thinking about going to a community college? The FASNY has a program called FASNY HELP, which is a tuition reimbursement program. This reimbursement program can be used for any degree that you want to pursue, whether firefighting related or not. The only requirement is to be in good standing in a fire company. Learn more at FASNY HELP.
