Recruitment and Retention Program January 24th LOSAP

A Length of Service Award Program presentation will be held on January 24th, 2023 at 6 PM at the Ray S. Burton Training Facility in Bethlehem NH.


This 1-hour program will provide an idea of how to use a LOSAP to help recruit and retain members in your Volunteer/Call organization.

Fire Departments, EMS squads, and SAT teams are encouraged to attend.


  • More than 70% of emergency service recruits quit within five (5) years.
  • Close to 50% of those who stay, leave within 10 years.
  • For every 10 recruits, less than three (3) may stay with your organization after 10 years.


A  defined benefit LOSAP is designed to provide tangible benefits to volunteers who commit time and energy to provide valuable emergency service to their community. The program rewards those volunteers who meet the criteria you (or as mandated by the state) establish. Benefits increase for each year of qualified service.

Who benefits from LOSAP:

  • Community – Establishing a LOSAP can provide significant savings to municipalities that are otherwise associated with paying salaries.
  • Emergency Service Organization – Establishing service requirements to qualify for benefits promotes a better-trained and managed team of volunteers.
  • Volunteers – Establishing a LOSAP offers rewards to volunteers for community service and encourages volunteer retention.

Please register at and reserve your seat for the upcoming course on the retention tool called LOSAP.
