About Us

Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things

Join us. Volunteer.

We are proud to provide fire and rescue services to the residents of Marshall Township, Pennsylvania. Marshall is 16 square miles and home to over 9000 residents and several hundred businesses. Four out of every 10 calls are for an accident – not a fire. MTVFD is part of the emergency response team for the portions of Interstate 79, Route 19 and the PA Turnpike that traverse Marshall Township.

We are a diverse group of over 60 volunteers composed of firefighters and company members who support administrative and educational activities. Member ages range from 16 to 90. Over one quarter of our members are women who fill many roles including firefighting. Both the President and Vice President of the Board are women. Our members are 100% volunteer. We do not get paid.

The Department operates out of two stations (270 Northgate Drive and 465 Knob Road) with two fire engines, one heavy rescue truck, and several specialty vehicles. In 2018, we responded to over 500 calls. Projections for 2019 are that this number will be even higher.
