The Association of Fire Districts of the State of New York, a not-for-profit corporation, works to improve the fiscal responsibility, efficiency and effectiveness of the fire district management through education, training and advocacy for commissioners and other fire district officials in the 57 counties outside of the City of New York.


In conformity with federal, state and local emergency declarations linked to the Covid-19 Coronavirus crisis and in keeping with the advice of public health experts; our Association finds it necessary to postpone the following on-site commissioner training classes that were scheduled for the next eight weeks:     
03/21    8am        Clifton Park Fire Department - Saratoga County
03/21    8am        Endwell Fire Department - Broome County
03/28    8am        (ACK)  Keeseville Fire Department - Clinton County
03/28    8am        Hammondsport Fire Department - Steuben County
03/28    8am        Sullivan Co. Fire Training Ctr. - Sullivan County
04/18    8am        Watertown Fire Department - Jefferson County
04/18    8am        Erie Co. Fire Training Academy - Erie County
04/30    8:30am   Long Island Marriott (Annual Meeting) - Nassau County
05/02    8am        Irving Fire Department - Chautauqua County
05/09    8am        Westmere Fire Department - Albany County
Commissioners may if they prefer can complete their educational requirements using the Association on-line training option. Commissioners already scheduled for classroom training may convert their on-site training payment and apply it to the online training option. Scheduled classroom participants switching to the on-line option will receive a refund for the price difference between the two types of training classes.
You may also wait for your postponed class to be rescheduled and then attend the class on that date. If you choose to simply attend the rescheduled class that you originally registered for, you do not have to do anything. You will be notified of the new date, time and location and you can just join us on that date.
The class that was scheduled for the Association Annual Meeting at the Long Island Marriott will be rescheduled as a separate class at a Nassau County site.
We apologize for any inconvenience that the postponement of these classes has caused, but we look forward to seeing you at the rescheduled classes and providing you with quality training that you expect from our instructors.
Should you have any questions relative to the postponement and rescheduling your training class, please contact the Program/Education Coordinator Cathy Deluca at
