Firefighter Bunk-In Program
Our Bunk-In programs offers free student housing with full use of Gym, Bunk Room with free WiFi and personal protective equipment is provided.
The Maynard Fire District plays host to the SUNY Polytechnic Institute, Utica Campus, in the southeastern portion of their district. Starting in the fall of 2019, Maynard founded a Bunk-In program where qualified students living at SUNY Poly and surrounding colleges can live at Maynard Station 1 and respond to fire/EMS calls in exchange for free room and board. This program has led to a reduction in response times and an increase in the overall response capabilities of the Maynard Fire Department.
RAM Teen Program
Our RAM programs offers youth a path to begin their rewarding journey as a volunteer firefighter.
In response to a demand from the young residence of the Maynard Fire District, Maynard formed the Restricted Access Member (RAM) program. This program allows interested potential members between the ages of 16 and 18 years old to participate in department events and responses under the watchful eye of senior members. RAMs are assessed upon their 18th birthday and are either brought into the department as a probationary member or retained for further review.
