Tarrytown

Please join us for the 2022 Annual Convention and the formal celebration of FASNY’s 150th anniversary. The Convention will be held at the historic Tarrytown House Estate overlooking the majestic Hudson River. This venue is an excellent site to accommodate both the needs of our business meeting and the social events we have planned. As the largest gathering of volunteer firefighters in the State, this is a great time to connect with your brothers and sisters in service. There will be special events throughout Convention you won’t want to miss. These include a dinner cruise around Manhattan, a Dress Parade in Tarrytown and a golf tournament to benefit the Gerard J. Buckenmeyer FASNY Volunteer Scholarship and the Firemen’s Home.

It was a pleasant afternoon in August 1872 as a parade moved along the main street of Auburn, New York. A group of local volunteer firemen stood on the curb watching, when one of them (whose name history does not record) spoke up, asking “Why not have a firemen’s convention?” Little did any of them realize at the time that this chance remark would provide the incentive for the formation of what was to become one of the largest organizations in the state.

In 150 years since, FASNY has remained dedicated to informing, educating and training the volunteer fire service thanks to the commitment of its members and leadership by hundreds of individuals. The organization has continually enhanced knowledge and encouraged camaraderie among volunteer firefighters with numerous programs and services.

For the past century and a half, Convention has been FASNY’s signature event filled with fellowship, education and a little fun. Don’t miss this year’s extra special edition of tradition in Tarrytown!
