Benefits of Being An Eggertsville Volunteer

Joining the Eggertsville Hose Company offers a wealth of benefits, from comprehensive training and financial rewards to personal safety and community involvement. Here’s a closer look at what you can expect:

Quality Training for Free: Bring your commitment, and we’ll provide top-notch training at no cost. Our offerings range from local and county training to NYS certified courses, regional, and national seminars, and conferences. We’re dedicated to helping you excel in every aspect of emergency services.

Length of Service Award Program (LOSAP): This incentive rewards your dedication with a financial benefit. After five years of continuous active service, you become vested, enjoying a monthly stipend upon reaching retirement at 55, with maximum benefits after 40 years of service.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Your safety is our priority. We equip our firefighters with the latest in fire-resistant gear, including coats, pants, boots, gloves, hoods, and helmets, all personalized with your name, rank, and ID.

Dress Uniforms: Show your Eggertsville pride with a professional dress uniform, provided after a minimum service period, along with other apparel through a cost-sharing program.

Fire Station Facilities: Our fire station, dedicated in 1995, is not just a building but a community hub. Members enjoy access to our workout room, car wash bay, TV room, and spaces for socializing with fellow members.

Social Events: Celebrate achievements and build camaraderie through our annual installation dinner, conventions, parades, parties, family picnics, and holiday gatherings. Participate in our softball team or bowling league, cheer on at the demolition derby, or join the Santa run.

Benevolent Association: After probation, members can join the Eggertsville Fireman’s Benevolent Association, which offers financial assistance for healthcare expenses, hospital stay stipends, and support for indigent members.

Peace of Mind: Recognizing the inherent risks in firefighting, we provide extensive protection and support. This includes coverage under New York State’s Volunteer Fireman’s Benefit Law, Workmen’s Compensation, and supplemental insurance, ensuring your and your family’s financial security in case of injury or fatality. Annual comprehensive medical examinations, a firefighter fitness center, and access to the Public Safety EAP program for counseling and stress debriefing are all part of our commitment to your health, safety, and well-being.

At the Eggertsville Hose Company, we not only work hard but also play hard, all while ensuring the safety and support of our volunteers. Join us in making a difference in our community.
