The Border City Fire Department is a public safety organization that provides fire, rescue and emergency services to the community that relies on volunteer membership. We are committed to the preservation of life, property and the environment. Through education and public awareness programs, we enhance the quality of life and the safety of the citizens we proudly serve.
Positions available in the Border City Fire Department:
1. Firefighter - This is the primary position for all members of the Department. The firefighter responds to emergencies which threaten the safety of citizens or their property. The firefighter receives basic and advanced training in preparation for emergency response. The firefighter also receives protective clothing and gear suitable for emergency situations. All firefighters also receive training and certification in basic Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) techniques and Auto Defribulator (AED) use.
2. Emergency Medical Services - Firefighters who are interested in becoming Certified First Responder (CFR) or a Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) receive additional training and can become certified in New York State. With this additional training firefighters can serve the community by assisting residents who become ill or are injured.
