In order to apply for membership in the New City Fire Dept. an individual must:

 

Be a resident of the New City Fire District for one-year, or be a property owner and resident for three months preceding the date of application.

Be eighteen years old. However, residents who are at least 16 years old can join as a junior member. Junior members have a number of restrictions placed on them, until they reach the age of 18. All applicants are considered probationary members for one year.

Car fire demonstration If an individual meets the above requirements, he/she should come to the firehouse and obtain an application. He/she should bring with them a copy of their driver's license. The application must be completed and notarized. In addition, an arson check will be performed on all applicants by the County Sheriffs Department as required by New York State law.

Once the application is completed, the member's name will be read at the next Company meeting, which is held on the first Wednesday of each month. During the latter part of the same month, the member will be contacted to meet with the Investigating Committee. One of the duties of this Committee is to review all interested applicants. The Committee will explain in detail the requirements and duties of being a member of the New City Fire Dept. During this meeting, the applicant is afforded time and encouraged to ask questions. Applicants who are under eighteen years old (18) must bring a parent with them.

The New York State requirement TO BE A VOLUNTEER FIREMAN is that the applicant must complete a New York State Training program, which consists of a basic and intermediate fire-training course. The duration of these two courses is approximately 26 weeks. These courses are offered a number of times during the year in the evenings at the Fire Training Center in Pomona, NY. These courses must be completed within eighteen (18) months of becoming a member.

Once the applicant decides to join, he/she is required to obtain a physical by the department's Fire Surgeon in Nanuet, NY. There is no charge for the physical, as long as, the applicant decides to become a member.

Once the physical and arson check are returned to the New City Fire Dept (which is usually before the next Company meeting) the members name is voted on at the Company meeting.

Once the applicant is accepted for membership by the Company, his/her application is reviewed by the New City Board of Fire Commissioners the next evening. Following this review, the applicant will receive a letter that indicates he has been accepted as a member. Once the applicant receives the letter, he/she is to report to the firehouse to start training and receive equipment.

Within two months of receiving the acceptance letter, the applicant must present himself/herself at a Company meeting, at which time they will be sworn in and receive, the Company bylaws; SOPS, badge and key.

During the first five (5) years of membership an applicant must annually maintain 35% of all called activities; must attend eight company drills; and attend three company meetings. Failure to meet these requirements in any given year will result in the member being dropped from the roles of the company.
