    Technically I think it's a no-no. I remember seeing something in a FASNY magazine about it a couple years ago, and I think it fell under the same ruling as 2 depts in NY (I think they ran this through some state agency for an official opinion). I know for 2 depts in-state, the suggested remedy was to be a member of one dept and work with the second under a mutual aid agreement between the 2 chiefs. This might work for a second dept out of state.

    FASNY's website is http://www.fasny.com. If you shoot them an email, they might be able to help.

      I live on the border of North and South Carolina and half of the guys I work with are both volunteers and paid firemen in both states. There is no problem as far as the fire service is concerned. If you are paid in both states it makes for a bit of a retirement and tax nightmare, but people do it here all the time.

        I know of people that are members of departents in two different counties in the same state, so I don't know why it would be a problem to be a member in two different states. As long as you can meet the requirements of the two departments, there shouldn't be a problem.

          NY specifically states that you can't be an active member of more than one fire department (company). I know other states allow it, but not NY. As the previous poster states there are ways around it.
