Prospective Members Guide

YHFD Membership Application

Click here to be contacted by a YHFD Firefighter and begin the application process

The Application Process

  1. First, read the Prospective membership guide in it's entirety. It has been designed to answer most questions you could have. If you have any further questions regarding this guide or any step of the application process, contact us by emailing us at [email protected], or by calling us at 914.962.2148 and asking for a membership committee member.
  2. On any Monday night between 6pm - 9pm, stop by Station 1, located at 1916 Commerce st in Yorktown Heights to speak to a Membership Committee member and pick up an application.
  3. Each prospective member must complete and submit a standard Yorktown Heights Engine Company No. 1 Application. The application includes personal information, lists of references and work experience, and information for background and arson checks. Along with the form, a $25 processing fee is required to be paid.
  4. Membership Applications are only accepted twice a year: January 1st - March 1st, and July 1st - September 1st.
  5. Applications (including the $25 check) are only processed twice a year: March and September.
  6. After submitting the application, your application will be introduced at either the next March or September company meeting (1st Tuesday of the month) and posted for a period of 30 days.
  7. The membership committee will contact you to schedule an interview during that 30 day period.
  8. At the next April or October meeting, the membership committee will present their findings from your interview to the Engine Company, and you’ll be voted on as a probationary member. A member of the Membership committee will contact you with the results of the company vote after the meeting.
  9. Pending a passing vote, you’ll then be required to attend a Board of Fire Commissioners meeting (2nd Tuesday of every month).
  10. Pending your department physical, and passing the background check, the District will conditionally approve your membership as a firefighter
  11. Once you’ve passed both the background and department physical, and are approved, you are officially a probationary firefighter and you will begin your one year probationary period following the completion of our Probationary Firefighter Orientation Program.
