Julio Avila tries out firefighter gear


Did you know, firefighters have roughly two minutes to put on their gear? I got a taste of what life is like as a firefighter for a few hours. This is part of my special report, “A Day in the Life of a Firefighter,” airing Thursday, April 25 at 11:00 p.m. on 18 News and available now on MyTwinTiers.com.

Also April 27 & 28, volunteer fire departments across New York will be opening their doors for RecruitNY, a campaign to reverse the dwindling number of volunteers plaguing departments.
