Governor signs into law Senator Tedisco’s legislation to enable Pleasant Square Volunteer Fire Company in Johnstown to boost volunteer recruitment

Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C,I,REF-Glenville) today announced that the Governor has signed into law his legislation to enhance public safety in Fulton County by enabling the Pleasant Square Volunteer Fire Company in Johnstown to boost their firefighter recruitment efforts. 

Tedisco’s bill (S.8979A) will allow the Pleasant Square Volunteer Fire Company in the town of Johnstown to recruit volunteer firefighters from outside the fire district’s boundaries to help in their recruitment efforts so they are able to fully respond to emergencies.

“Ensuring public safety is my top priority and should be job number one for any elected representative.  This new law will not only lead to more government efficiency for our tax dollars but also help support the brave men and women who volunteer as firefighters and emergency first responders. These neighbors helping neighbors put their lives on the line each and every day to protect our communities and the lives of our families and neighbors,” said Tedisco.

The bill was sponsored in the Assembly by Assemblyman Marc Butler (R,C,I,REF-Newport).
