Did you know that we provide a voluntary EMS service? We proudly provide a QRS (Quick Response Service) to our community. That means, whenever an ambulance is dispatched in our coverage area, we are dispatched as well to assist EMS crews. Our members who respond on QRS calls are certified EMT’s, or EMR’s who are trained in medical emergencies.
Breakfast is back!! Our next breakfast will be March 12th, from 8am to 12pm. We are pleased to continue offering new items on our menu. Without your support, we would not be where we are today!
On Monday, May 25th, 2015, crews were dispatched to Paige Trail to help save ducklings that were caught in the storm drains. After about an hour of playing hide-and-seek, all ten ducklings that were trapped were rescued and returned safely to their Mom.
Our members are up to date on all CPR and First Aid training requirements.
We have smoke detectors!
Smoke detectors save lives!!!! We have smoke detectors to give out to our residents who are in need of them. Thanks to 6abc Operation Save a Life, we are able to further our fire prevention in our community and to help keep our residents safe. If you are in need of smoke detectors or are interested in getting some please call us at (215) 257-9620 or stop in on any Tuesday night.
Welcome to Silverdale Volunteer Fire Company
2016 turned into a busy and productive year. The members have responded to over 350 calls, both fire and ems. 2017 will be a fun and exciting year for us. We are proud to continue our duel dispatch system with the Hilltown Volunteer Fire Company. Our two fire companies are now responding to each other calls and are working hard to provide an effective firefighting and rescue force for our community, and to ensure that we have all the manpower necessary to get the task done. We are proud to provide this community with reliable fire protection and we would like the thank the community for all of their support! In the meanwhile, just like you, our normal day-to-day operating, maintenance, and training expenses continue to grow. Once again, we are asking you to PLEASE dig deep, and continue to support your volunteer firefighters. These dedicated men and women selflessly put themselves in harm’s way to protect the people and property in our great community. Only through your support can we continue to provide them with the tools, training, and support they need to do this heroic work. Volunteers do not just save lives; they will save Silverdale Borough and Hilltown Township tax dollars and keep insurance rates low. By maintaining a high level of training and preparedness, our active volunteers help keep the ISO Public Protection Classification Ratings low, which helps keep your insurance rates down. Now it’s your turn to be a hero, and be part of a great tradition of service.
