The Harrison Volunteer Fire Department is accepting applications for new firefighters to serve the community. A bonus is currently being offered to college students and graduates who have unpaid tuition and student loans. Westchester county executive George Latimer has started a recruitment and retention program for volunteer fire departments and EMS agencies where members can receive up to $6,000 annually to pay off student loans and tuition costs.
