Volunteer Firefighting in NY and NJ
I had a question I was hoping people could answer with legit articles or legal clauses rather than opinion.
The NYS law does not allow one to be a full member of more than 1 Volunteer Fire Dept in NY
However can one be a member in 1 NY Volunteer dept and 1 NJ Volunteer Dept at the same time?

There is no law in NJ that prohibits you from being a member of a NY FD. But, you will have to get both NY FF1 (or it's equivalent) and NJ FF1. Neither is accepted in the other state and it takes a lot of effort to get NJ to allow you to challenge the NJ test without doing the full course."This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?

As Bones said. There is no law that prohbits you from belonging to two different fire companies, whether in or out of state. Some Fire Companies have it written into their bylaws, however. In addition, I think there is something about the Relief or Exempt associations that has to do with it.. I forget the details, though.So you call this your free country
Tell me why it costs so much to live
