Blasdell Volunteer Fire Department is looking for  over  600 volunteers in what is called the  RecruitNY 2019 this weekend.  According tot the website the  idea behind the open house is to collaborate with the community and gain recruits.

"We run between 400-500 calls a year," Blasdell Fire Chief Brian Gill said. The department also assists other companies in neighboring towns on calls. "If there's a fire in you, please come on down and join us and take part in the family hood of the volunteer fire service," Edward Tase of the Fireman's Association of the State of New York said.

Blasdell fire company will hold its open house this Sunday, April 28th from 1-4p.m. at the fire hall. For a complete list of open houses, click here .
