Why become a FASNY member? Because when you join this organization, you unite with your brothers and sisters in the volunteer fire service in a special way.
As the oldest organization of its kind in New York State and one of the largest in the country, FASNY is the voice of the volunteer firefighter. Not only do we speak loudly in Albany, we offer important benefits that ultimately make you a stronger and better firefighter.
The mission of FASNY is four-fold. We strive to demonstrate:
- Influence as the voice for legislative, regulatory and standard making bodies.
- Education as the premier source for recruitment, education and retention of personnel.
- Support by delivering value through member benefits, services and opportunities.
- Strength by maintaining a nationally respected state association founded in 1872.
By becoming a FASNY member, you join a powerful group run by and for volunteer firefighters. We train, educate and advocate, but we also take care of the unique needs of the most important members of our communities across New York State.
