At one time a firefighter's sole purpose was to fight fires, but times have changed over the years. Firefighters of today now have many added responsibilities and respond to the vast majority of motor vehicle entrapment calls, hazardous material spills, automatic fire alarms. physical rescues plus still fight fires. Most people don’t realize it, but in Allegheny County, almost every fire department is solely made up of volunteers and unfortunately the number of volunteers continually drop every year, leaving local fire departments short-staffed during different hours of the day. We are seeking motivated individuals that would like to help serve and protect our community as a Volunteer Firefighter or Fire Police Member here at Station 164. For those interested in volunteering, please visit our station on any Wednesday evening to meet our members first hand and see what we have to offer. You will make a difference, please volunteer today!
