In rural counties like Oswego, local volunteer fire departments play a vital role in protecting the safety and property of residents. Dedicated volunteer firefighters are often the first on the scene of a life-threatening fire or auto accident, so thorough training is of primary importance.

To become a volunteer firefighter, a candidate must successfully complete a course that covers skills such as entering burning buildings, hose operations, and fire scene safety. The training doesn't end there - volunteers move on to specialized training courses designed to prepare them for a wide variety of emergencies. These training courses include topics such as how to operate emergency vehicles and water pumps, how to remove an injured person from a wrecked car, officer training and leadership, fire scene command, how to rescue people from heights or confined spaces, and how to handle emergencies dealing with hazardous materials.

There is a shortage of volunteer firefighters in New York State and here in Oswego County. More dedicated men and women are needed in the volunteer firefighter ranks of the departments are to continue their proud tradition of protecting the public's safety in rural areas.
