We Need Volunteers
The Neshannock Township Volunteer Fire Company is made up of everyday citizens who have a desire to serve, a adventurous spirit, and a compassionate demeanor. Our organization consists of men and women of all age groups who work together to provide emergency response to Neshannock Township and surrounding communities. Not everyone actually fights fire, but each person in our organization has an important role. Many of our members participate in fire suppression, but some members choose to be rescue technicians, some specialize in emergency medical care, while others only participate in the business functions of the fire company. Our community and our fire company rely on volunteers to keep our citizens safe.
Emergency response is a diverse business with many unique challenges that are mitigated by a team members of varying skills and abilities. We are currently seeking volunteers to fill the following roles in our organization:
Firefighters perform fire suppression duties including operating hoses, searching for victims in a fire, and climbing ladders. Firefighters must also be competent in a variety of specialized rescue tasks.
Engineers are responsible for driving fire and rescue apparatus. In addition to driving the apparatus, engineers must also operate a variety of equipment such as pumps and generators.
Emergency Medical Service (EMS) Providers care for the sick and injured before they are transported to a hospital for advanced care. EMS providers are trained in numerous emergency medical procedures.
In addition to these primary responder groups, we offer these other types of membership:
Cadets are members between 16 and 18 years of age who are able to participate in certain fire and rescue functions while they are receiving training in emergency response.
Social members do not necessarily participate in emergency response, but participate in certain administrative functions of the organization.
Our fire company requires all types of skill sets and personalities to fulfill our mission. We encourage you to contact us to explore how you may a part of our organization.
