Legislative Outreach Program

FASNY Legislative Outreach Program

Following the conclusion of each Annual Legislative Conference in Albany, FASNY hosts its Legislative Outreach Program each spring. The program was started in 2008 and has been extremely successful in bringing the legislative agenda back to the Sectionals from Albany.

The primary focus of the program is to be educational meetings relating to legislation affecting the volunteer fire service. The meetings usually last anywhere from 90 to 120 minutes and cover the FASNY Legislative Agenda as well as issues of interest to the sponsoring Sectionals.

FASNY’s legislative representatives are on hand along with FASNY Legislative Committee members to facilitate the program. State legislators attend to comment and listen to the fire service legislative needs. FASNY also encourages our members to sign up for the ENGAGE legislative alert program.
