We Need Members!

As with many volunteer organizations, membership numbers are becoming critically low. Without adequate numbers, our ability to respond to calls within the district can be impacted. Please consider reaching out and joining us today, and seeing all the benefits of helping your community!

Fire Prevention

Install smoke alarms on every level of your home, inside bedrooms and outside sleeping areas. Test smoke alarms every month. If they’re not working, change the batteries. Talk with all family members about a fire escape plan and practice the plan twice a year. If a fire occurs in your home, GET OUT, STAY OUT and CALL FOR HELP. Never go back inside for anything or anyone.

Drug Overdose Signs

Loss of consciousness. Markedly constricted or pinpoint pupils. Breathing difficulties (slowed, labored, and/or irregular breathing). Respiratory arrest (completely stopped breathing). Choking, gurgling, or snoring sounds. Blue or purple lips or fingertips. Being unresponsive to loud noises, shaking, or painful stimuli.


Naloxone is a medication approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) designed to rapidly reverse opioid overdose. It is an opioid antagonist—meaning that it binds to opioid receptors and can reverse and block the effects of other opioids, such as heroin, morphine, and oxycodone. If you are ever in need of this medication, please contact Rensselaer County and you can receive it for free. The county website is linked below.
