BILL NUMBER:S3301

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to
requiring schools to allow fire departments to make a recruitment
presentation in a high school

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This legislation is intended to help
fire department recruit new junior members within local schools.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1 amends the education law by adding a new section 807-e:
Fire department recruitment. The principal of any high school shall
allow any local fire department, upon request, to enter the school for
the purpose of fire department junior recruitment, including, but not
limited to: making presentations; disseminating literature, and
answering questions from students.

Section 2 allows the act to take effect the first of July next
succeeding the date on which it shall have become law.

JUSTIFICATION: It is important for the future of volunteer fire
departments across New York State to begin recruiting new members as
soon as they become eligible to join. This legislation would allow any
local volunteer fire department to give presentations, distribute
literature, or develop any marketing technique necessary to recruit
junior members in high school. Establishing a connection with young
adults early, provides for the opportunity for a long and successful
career as a volunteer firefighter.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: S.7352 of 2012

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect the first of July next
succeeding the date on which it shall have become law.
