Westchester seeking volunteer firefighters

Westchester's Department of Emergency Services is looking for new volunteer firefighters and has made class schedules more convenient for potential recruits.

County Executive Rob Astorino (R-Westchester) was on hand today at the training facility in Valhalla to encourage more recruits to volunteer their time at the county's 58 firehouses.

"These guys and women are terrific at what they do, they are so dedicated and I think their numbers are not as strong as they could be so the volunteer fire department is always asking for new people," Astorino says.
