I believe the V.A. Hospital in Northport, L.I. has a paid F.D. Well, they did in the 70's anyway.

The Northport VA Medical Center Fire Department, led by fire department chief Pat McIntyre, works with his team of firefighters daily to ensure the safety of hospital staff and Long Island's veterans by inspecting, testing, and maintaining every fire safety component at the hospital. Along with the spread of COVID-19 came a wave operational changes and new considerations for firemen while on duty. "At the beginning of each tour, we start by cleaning the fire station. We are constantly trying to maintain a clean working environment in the fire house to keep us safe." A long list of responsibilities---building inspections, defibrillator inspections, penetration inspections and repairs, answering fire, rescue, and ambulance alarms---all must be conducted in a high-risk environment, and now with even more personal protective equipment required.
