Volunteer Emergency Services

What if there was a fire and no one came?

What if someone was having a heart attack and no one came?

Below are names and contact information for fire and emergency medical services (EMS) providers in Albany County. These agencies are volunteer. That means they operate without paying their employees. The workers are individuals like you, your neighbors, your friends, and your family.

They are dispatched out of their homes at any time of day or night to aid the other residents and business owners in their communities. Without the volunteers, these agencies would not exist.

These agencies need help doing their job of serving the public. They need you! The more volunteers there are, the lighter the load on each individual volunteer, making life easier and the job done more efficiently.
