On Saturday April 24th from 9am-Noon. The Dresden Fire Department and The Village of Dresden will be hosting an open house. During this time the Village of Dresden will have their offices and bays open for tours and answer questions you may have. The Dresden Fire Department will also have the station open for tours. The Dresden Fire Department will also be doing an Auto Extrication Demonstration with a vehicle and our new extrication tools. There will also be free refreshments, and it is open to the public and everyone is highly encouraged to attend.
This will also be a recruitment event for the Dresden Fire Department as we participate in the statewide Recruit NY.
Have you ever thought about joining the Dresden Fire Department? Or were you a past member and thinking of coming back? This would be the perfect opportunity to have your questions answered and possibly fill out an application.
There are many paths one can take within the Dresden Fire Department. Here’s a list:
Interior Firefighter (goes inside structure with air-pack)
Exterior Firefighter (fights from outside structure and many other duties)
Fire-Police (directs traffic and keeps those at the scene safe) We have a active squad and always expanding
EMS (emergency medical services) we have a active first responders unit that responds to medical calls.
From these positions many have went on to further their training and also become: Truck and Pump Operators, Auto Extrication, and haz-mat to name a few.
The Dresden Fire Department is a great opportunity to serve your community in a capacity that best fits you. We’re a active department that every month host a monthly meeting, have in house training, many active committees, and fundraisers.
