Firefighters in smoke

Fire Department

Emergency Medical Services

When requested, we assist Medical Rescue Team South Authority, our local private ambulance company, and respond as a basic life support provider on high priority incidents when all emergency medical service units are busy.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health has designated us as a Quick Response Service. All of our career firefighters and 10 of our volunteers are certified as either emergency medical technicians or paramedics.
