TC open house and recruitment


As part of the annual RecruitNY statewide initiative, the Terry's Corners Volunteer Fire Company will open its doors so residents can learn how they can serve their volunteer fire department.

Volunteer fire departments across New York State are struggling with decreased membership and increased call volume. Like most volunteer fire departments, the Terry's Corners VFC needs to bolster its ranks so it can continue to provide the optimum level of protection for its residents.

As part of RecruitNY Weekend, the Terry's Corners VFC will open its doors on Saturday, April 23 from Noon until 4pm. The Company is located at 7801 Chestnut Ridge Rd., Gasport, NY. They will be joining volunteer fire departments across New York to raise public awareness regarding the need for volunteers and to highlight the rewards of being a member of a volunteer fire department.

Throughout the day, the Terry's Corners Volunteer Fire Company will conduct tours of the station and apparatus, allow visitors to try on gear, demonstrate firefighting activities, provide information, and address questions on becoming a member.
