Have you ever wanted to be a volunteer firefighter? Now is the time to do so. The emergency service is in a crisis and now we have benefits to offer for those who join and volunteer! This is through a Recruitment and Retention grant in which multiple departments around the area have received.

New volunteers have these benefits:

*Up to $10,000 per recruit ($2,500 per year) in tuition reimbursement from any accredited post secondary school.
*A stipend of up to $5 per call that you respond to with a total of up to $500/yr.
*New turnout gear.
*$5,000 life insurance policy.
*All the necessary training required to obtain these benefits.

All of these benefits are free of charge to you and to the fire department due to the grant received.

Send us a message if you are interested in joining the fire department or stop by our station located at 392 State Street, Sandy Ridge, PA 16677.

Our annual ambulance subscription drive is underway for 2023. We do third party billing. This means, when you are transported to the hospital by our ambulance, we will bill your health insurance provider for reimbursement. Most insurance companies only pay a percentage of the bill and will leave you with a great amount of out-of-pocket expense. By purchasing a membership, we will "write-off" any monies not paid by your insurance company in the event you need our EMS services. The bill is considered paid in full. Price for the membership is $65 for family (everyone who resides in your household) and $45 for single. If you do not receive yours in the mail, please send us a message and we will mail one to you.

In addition, in the event you have fallen, are not injured and cannot get up (lift assist only) the fee for non-subscribers is $50 and the fee for subscribers is $25. These are considered non-billable to the insurance companies so the patient is responsible for payment.

By purchasing a subscription you are financially protecting yourself and/or your family. This is also our ambulance service biggest fund drive which maintains our service to have the necessary up to date life saving equipment needed to protect our community when needed. Please consider purchasing a subscription.
This year we changed the design of our membership and the card is at the bottom of the flyer and is detachable for you to return back with payment. Please keep an eye out for our annual subscription drive in the mail.

If you have questions, concerns, and/or suggestions please do not hesitate to give us a call at 814-339-7410 or message this page.

As always, thank you for you continued support!
