A Focus on Recruitment and Retention - We Teach, We Train, We Serve Together

Westchester Marriott Tarrytown, NY

FASNY invites you to join us at the 148th annual Convention as we turn our special attention to recruitment and retention. This “Focus on Recruitment and Retention” is a promise from FASNY to first responders who now more than ever need the support of New York State’s largest volunteer firefighter organization. This theme will be a big part of the overall message at the largest gathering of volunteer firefighters in the State as you’ll hear from a variety of speakers during our Speaker Series. These sessions and a special roundtable discussion return with an emphasis on the most critical issues facing the fire service today.
