Members of the Nyack Fire Department gather today at the firehouse on Catherine Street at Route 9W for a Chiefs Inspection.
Fire chiefs from other Rockland County fire departments will review the volunteers in their formal uniforms. The inspection is a prelude to the Oct. 6 Nyack Fire Department Chiefs Inspection Parade, in which Nyack volunteers and Chief James Petriello will host area fire departments as they show off their members and firefighting equipment.
The Nyack Fire Deparment, like all fire departments in Rockland County, is a 100 percent volunteer organization.
For information on joining the Nyack Fire Department, visit any of the eight fire companies that make up the fire department. To report a fire, dial 911.
