Our mission is threefold:
We are proud to provide fire and rescue services to the residents of Marshall Township, Pennsylvania. The township is 16 square miles and located approximately 20 miles north of the city of Pittsburgh.. It is home to over 9000 residents and several hundred businesses. Four out of every 10 calls are for automobile accidents. Hence we are part of the emergency response team for portions of major highways that traverse our township. Consequently, our responses include portions of I79, Route 19 and the PA Turnpike.
The Department operates out of two stations (270 Northgate Drive and 465 Knob Road). At these stations, our equipment includes two fire engines, one heavy rescue truck, and several specialty vehicles. In 2020, even in the midst of a pandemic, we responded to almost 400 calls.
As a group of over 60 members, we are 100% volunteer. Thus, we are unpaid for our services. We are proud of our diversity. Member ages range from 16 to 90. In addition, over one quarter of our members are women, serving in a variety of roles. Several are trained firefighters. Both the President and Vice President are women.
Company members support administrative, educational activities as part of our department’s mission. Examples include, finances, website development and fire safety training and awareness at schools.
Our firefighters are professionally trained because we meet State Fire Academy requirements established by the Office of the State Fire Commissioner. Likewise, this is the recognized standard for professional, paid fire fighters.
