Basic Firefighting Class

Men and women from all over Sullivan County often learn how to fight fires at our Emergency Training Facility near White Lake. This Basic Firefighting Class represents a number of different local departments, standing in front of a building specifically constructed to simulate fire and smoke situations.

Monticello, NY – The Sullivan County Recruitment and Retention Task Force is excited to announce a number of RECRUIT NY initiatives this coming weekend.

“We are moving forward with a lot of positive energy,” affirms Sullivan County Fire Coordinator John Hauschild, who sits on the Task Force with Deputy Fire Coordinator Charlie Rampe, Summitville Fire Chief Robert Hufcut, Rock Hill Fire Chief Brian Soller, White Lake Fire Chief Brendon Cunningham, the Honorable Terry Mullen from the Sullivan County Volunteer Firefighters Association, and Jill Holland from the Fire Districts Association of Sullivan County.

“We formed this group to help the fire service of Sullivan County increase membership – and keep those members – for the benefit and safety of the communities we serve,” Hauschild adds.

To that end, the Task Force is launching a new Facebook page, Join Sullivan County Fire, and a new Instagram page, @joinsullivanfire, along with a direct email: joinsullivanfire@gmail.com.
