If you have a desire to assist your community and you have the time to dedicate to us you may be interested in joining.
They are people like you - men and women of all ages and careers. They are students, police officers, career firefighters, accountants, doctors, business owners, teachers, mechanics and postal workers. They are people from all walks of life. They are people who will leave their homes and families on a moments notice to fight the menace of fire or to assist at the scene of an accident.
PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU HAVE PRIOR FIRE FIGHTER EXPERIENCE, SOME OR ALL OF THE TRAINING REQUIREMENTS MAY BE WAIVED IF YOU HAVE ALREADY TAKEN THE REQUIRED BASIC COURSES.
When you become a member of the Hauppauge Volunteer Fire Department you are automatically covered by Workers Compensation in the event of an injury during your volunteer duties. You are also covered by a whole life insurance policy and you become enrolled in the N.Y. State Length of Service Award Program. You have use of the fire department facilities including the physical fitness center. Most importantly, you get the personal satisfaction and pride that comes with being an important part of your community - a professional volunteer firefighter.
Make no mistake about it. Volunteering in the Hauppauge Volunteer Fire Department requires a commitment that few are willing to make. You will be required to put in some long and hard hours. Emergencies do not care about time, temperature, birthdays or holidays. On some nights you will be asked to get out of a warm, comfortable bed and respond to a fire or other emergency. As a firefighter you can expect to lose sleep, miss meals and push yourself to limits beyond what you thought you were capable of. Take our word for it....what you see on TV or in the movies doesn't begin to describe the reality of fighting a fire. It is a dangerous and demanding task. But it is also one of the most rewarding things you can do... knowing that you helped make a difference.
