Rombout Fire Company in coordination with RecruitNY in conjunction with the start of National Volunteer Week will be hosting a recruitment open house on April 21, from 11:00am to 1:00pm at Rombout Station One at 901 Route 52, Fishkill near I-84 exit 12. As part of RecruitNY, Rombout with other participating fire departments statewide will be holding recruitment drives at their respective firehouses. This event will allow fire departments a chance to highlight the duties and rewards that come with being a volunteer firefighter or fire police. At noon time Rombout firefighters will be conducting a demonstration using the firefighter equipment on display. If you are interested in the duties as a firefighter, fire police personal or just helping the fire department, contact Rombout Fire Company at 845-896-8620 for more information about the open house.
