Upcoming Event

The Hopkinton Fort Jackson Fire Department will open its doors to area residents, so they can learn about what it takes to be a volunteer firefighter in their community as part of the fourth annual RecruitNY statewide initiative. Over the last several years, it has been very tough for many fire departments throughout New York state to recruit and retain volunteers for a variety of reasons. Like most volunteer fire departments, the needs to bolster its emergency responder numbers so it can continue to provide the optimum level of protection for its residents.

As part of RecruitNY, on Saturday, April 26 between 10am-2pm, the Hopkinton Fort Jackson Fire Department located at 2876 State Hwy. 11B Hopkinton, NY will join volunteer fire departments all across the state at their respective firehouses for a unified  recruitment drive. Not only will RecruitNY be an opportunity to highlight the duties and rewards that come with being a volunteer firefighter, it will also raise public awareness about the need for volunteers.

Throughout the day, the Hopkinton Fort Jackson Fire Department will conduct tours of the station and firefighter apparatus, allow visitors to try on firefighter gear, and provide activities and stations throughout the firehouse for visitors. The fire department will discuss the requirements to be a volunteer, as well as conduct demonstrations, answer questions, and let visitors know how to get involved in the fire department.

Members Needed

Recruitment- Is there a fire in you?

With membership numbers lower than they have ever been, the Hopkinton-Ft. Jackson F.D. is seeking new members ages 16 and up.

If you have ever had a desire to make a genuine difference in our community, to be of service to others during their greatest time of need or be a part of a group that shares a unique camaraderie, then now is the time to consider volunteering. The time to volunteer is not after tragedy strikes, but rather before it strikes so you have the training on hand to minimize the effects of that tragedy.

There are many roles to fill. We respond to a variety of calls, ranging from fires, to motor vehicle accidents, to damage caused by storms. If attacking flames is not for you, then realize there are many other tasks we perform. We can find a task you are comfortable performing. Of course, if you have the desire and drive to face the flames and battle them to the end… with proper training you can do just that!

We invite you to come down anytime. We can pull some equipment out and would be more than happy to answer any questions you might have. If you interested, you can call Chief Parker at home to assist with any questions (Steve Parker, 328-4670).

Consider this one last thought… in our town, without volunteers, there would be nobody to respond to our emergencies. Volunteers are needed.

Thank you all for your years of support!

St. Lawrence County Fire Training Facility

Fire Training Facility. - The new "Live Fire Burn Builidng Project" is a huge undertaking for our Volunteer fire service. The need is GREAT! as training standards for firefighters mandate live fire skills training before receiving interior firefighter certifications. St Lawrence County has no facility for conducting this mandated training, and is now forced to travel outside the county in order to meet this "Live Fire" training requirements. Please visit their website to see what you can do to help... every little bit helps!
