Fire Department

Luzerne County 
Station 189

ISO CLASS 3 / 3Y (8B)

We are a Built for Life Participating Department 

Click on About us tab on the Left side of the page for more information on our department


As in any volunteer organization, people are always needed.  We are constantly looking for new 

members.  Remember, you don't have to be a firefighter to be a member and you do not have to live inside of Wright Township.  There are many ways you can assist the department. 


Stop in any Monday evening between 5:30 PM and 9:30 PM and see how you can help the community. 

 or Click HERE to start the application process 



Our department covers the approximately 14 square miles of Wright Township and the approximately 13 square miles of Rice Township.  We are also on automatic dispatch for many of our surrounding towns, as they are for us.  All departments must rely on mutual aid to assist on  incidents for many reasons. 

The Volunteer Fire Service is dwindling across the entire country.  Many reasons are noted for this (economy, time, family, jobs, required training, etc..). The same reasons echo across the country and are alarming.  Ex PA Fire Commissioner Ed Mann was very vocal on these points in our state.  Locally, we have dedicated volunteers but all departments are still having the same issues.  Members have more to do than in the past and less time to dedicate to the fire department and the community.  

We are always looking for members, and so is the local department in your area.  In most departments, you do not have to be a firefighter to become a member.  Our department has many different membership classifications and many ways for you to help out the community.  We will provide opportunity and training once you have become a member to help you grow as an individual and as part of our team.
