Annual Holiday Parade

Sunday, December 18th 2016, starting around 9AM.

Every year we deliver Santa and Holiday Cheer around the township of Wright and Rice.  We start around 9AM and do not stop until we have visited every possible area in both townships.  This varies from year to year slightly and will be very different this year due to blytheburn road being closed for bridge repair.  We will do the best we can to get to your area.  Santa and his helpers will also be handing out candy canes to any children who come out to wave and say hello to Santa as he passes by. Please check facebook on the day of the event for live updates... you can like our page by clicking on the blue like button in the upper right of the page or on the right hand column.

Have a very Merry Christmas, Safe and Happy Holiday and a very Healthy and Happy 2017.

 

Please keep an eye in the mail for our annual fund drive. 

This is a large portion of our fund raising and allows us to update and modernize our equipment.

We appreciate any and all contributions.

Thank you again for your support !!

If you receive a reminder and have already donated, please do not worry and do not donate a second time unless you wish too.  There is a small time period where people donate and the reminders pass at the post office.  Again we apologize, but do not be discouraged if you have already donated and receive a reminder letter.

VOLUNTEERS 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 

 


Overview

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.
