Winter Fire Safety Tips


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.  In our area, we are a little more fortunate to have dedicated volunteers but all departments are still having the same issues.  Members have more to do than years passed 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.  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.

Stop in any Monday evening between 5:30 PM and 9:30 PM and see how you can volunteer
