On Sunday April 24, 2022 from 10am-2pm, we will hold our annual Recruit NY Recruitment Drive at our Headquarters located at 1975 East Main St (Rt. 6) in Mohegan Lake. The Mohegan Volunteer Fire Association will join volunteer fire departments from all across New York State at their respective firehouses for this unified recruitment drive. Not only will RecruitNY be an opportunity to highlight the rewards and responsibilities that come with being a volunteer firefighter, it will also raise public awareness about the need for volunteers. The goal of RecruitNY is that the collaborative effort among volunteer fire departments statewide will help increase the number of volunteer firefighters. On this day, we will be able to discuss the requirements to be a volunteer, as well as answer questions, and let our visitors (prospective members) know how to get involved in the fire department. Our firefighters and ambulance corps members will be on hand and can assist those interested in joining. Typically, open houses are for children and primarily focused on fire prevention, this open house is not intended for that cause. This open house is centered directly on recruiting new membership! Any questions please contact Chief Chris Gravius at To join, you must be 16 years or older to join the fire department and 18 years or older for the Ambulance. Last year this drive was successful and gained members from it! "We Dare You To Cross The Fire Line"
