It's not just Richmond Engine Company that's looking for volunteers, every volunteer fire department in New York as well as in America is looking for volunteers. Overall participation in volunteer fire departments has declined drastically in recent years and is becoming a real problem in many places. Especially in rural areas is lack of volunteers becoming a crisis. These areas cannot afford to hire firefighters yet during the day few if any volunteers are available.

Anybody who is even slightly interested in becoming a volunteer firefighter in any part of the country should contact their local fire department.
