Recently FASNY released a report citing how much volunteer fire departments across the state save tax payers. This report is extremely misleading and omits many key points and costs of volunteer firefighters. The New York State Professional Firefighters Association prepared a more inclusive study showing the true cost of volunteer firefighters to their communities, the full study can be found here. We have also provided a link the the most recent NYSPFFA Press Release in response to the FASNY report.
