Volunteer firefighters are now being offered full tuition reimbursement through SUNY community colleges.

The Firemen's Association of the State of New York says it's offering to pay back 100-percent of tuition costs for volunteer firefighters to get an associate's degree so long as they maintain good grades and fulfill service requirements at a volunteer fire company.

The program covers all 30 SUNY community colleges.
