The Albany County Hilltown Volunteer Fire SAFER Grant Task Force: Recruitment & Retention for 12 Albany County Hilltown Volunteer Fire Companies.

Our overall recruitment and retention goals include the enlistment of new firefighters across the 12 volunteer fire companies we serve in Albany County. Beyond this, we seek to provide these new firefighters with appropriate training and physicals, along with the equipment, gear, and communications instruments required to support said training. Our long term aim is to transition these firefighters into dependable, capable, long term members of the fire companies they have joined, and train them to be fire service evangelists who will encourage their immediate family and friends to become volunteer firefighters.
