Garden City, NY – Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano will join forces with the State Firemen’s Association and the volunteer fire service to announce the third annual RecruitNY program at a press conference on Thursday, April 25th at 11:30 a.m. at the Nassau County Firefighters Museum on Museum Row in Uniondale.
Over the last several years, it has been tough for many statewide fire departments to recruit and retain volunteers for a variety of reasons. Volunteer fire departments need to bolster their emergency responder numbers, so they can continue to provide the optimum level of protection for their residents. As we saw with Superstorm Sandy, we all rely on the heroic men and women of our fire departments.
Joining County Executive Mangano at the announcement will be Angelo Catalano, President of the Firefighters Museum Board; Bob McConville, First Vice President of the Firemen’s Association of the State of New York and a member of the Bellerose Fire Department.
