Rockland County, NY - FIRE & SAFETY

The Committee to Promote Volunteerism in Rockland County Emergency Services, Inc. represents the county's 26 fire departments and 14 ambulance corps, manned by 3500 to 4000 active volunteers.

Our goal is to educate the public and increase awareness of our fire and ambulance services' reliance on volunteers. Our mission is to increase this number by recruitment or retention and to promote active involvement by businesses, government and other Rockland County organizations.
