From folks new to the community, to life-long Mocanaqua area residents, if you’ve got the time to dedicate to your community, we’d love to have you. Previous experience is not necessary. Training and equipment are provided free of charge, and all firefighters are covered by Workers Comp insurance. All firefighters must have a valid PA Driver’s License, good driving record, High School Diploma or G.E.D. or be currently enrolled in school. Residency in the fire district is preferred but no necessary. Criminal background checks will be conducted.
Volunteer firefighters are tasked with responding to calls for service, helping maintain equipment and attending training regularly. All costs are covered by the company. We provide everything you will need, including personal protective equipment and thorough training, to become a competent and safe firefighter. All we ask is for you to be active at training and response to calls.
Our firefighters also respond to non-fire incidents such as medical calls, traffic crashes, vehicle extrication, searches, boating incidents, environmental hazards and yes, even an occasional cat in the tree call. Firefighters trained in emergency medical care have even been responsible for saving lives in our community before our colleagues from EMS arrive.
Volunteers receive no pay, but you will enjoy the emotion of being a part of a great community organization. And knowing that you contributed to saving a life or protecting a person’s home is a priceless feeling.
Volunteer firefighters also serve another valuable role in the community by being active in training and response, it saves everyone money! Volunteering directly saves the community money. More information on how you can help is available by contacting the fire station at (570) 542-2231, or drop by for a visit and see first-hand how you can fill a valuable role in this community.
What about non-emergency activities? Can I still help?
We also have a need in our Social Members. Members help out behind the scenes on non-operational activities like fundraising, such as our, annual dinners, and a lot more. Fundraising is the cornerstone of our Social Members. The folks that help us out with these tasks are a big asset to us and the community. Even if you can only help the Social Members a couple of days a month, we are happy to have you. There are no training or attendance requirements. More information is available by contacting the fire station at (570) 542-2231, or drop by for a visit.
