Essentials Completion

Congratulations to Firefighter Paul Barfknecht and Junior Firefighter Ellianna Button for successfully completing the Essentials of Firefighting program. The Essentials of Firefighting is a 168 hour course that teaches the basics of firefighting. Although this training is not required by the state of Pennsylvania, we value the education and training of our firefighters for their safety and for our community. Thanks to Act 155 of 2022, it allows junior firefighters like Ellianna, age 17, to train on live-burn, interior firefighter modules. This brings us to a total of thirty-three active volunteer firefighters who have completed this program and continue to do more training!
