Fire

Harleysville Community Fire Company is a all-volunteer, non-profit organization. We prepare for future emergencies by maintaining tools, fire apparatus, and running drills. We also go out into Lower Salford and our neighboring community to provide public education on things like fire prevention and safety.

So what is our role in the community?

As a volunteer firefighter, we respond to emergency situations (fire, vehicle accidents, and search and rescue) and protect people, the environment and property from all types of accidents and emergencies. Our volunteer firefighters work closely with the local community to increase their level of fire safety awareness, in order to help prevent fires and accidents happening in the first place.

Why are our volunteers important community helpers?

A volunteer firefighter is a community helper who protects people from fire and keeps them safe. We volunteer our time to the fire department and can help in many ways by putting out fires, teaching people to prevent fires, rescuing people from fires, and responding to medical emergencies.

What are the roles and responsibilities of our volunteer firefighters?

To respond to fire alarms, medical emergencies, hazardous materials, rescue and other calls to protect life and property; to participate in fire prevention and training; and to maintain the fire station and firefighting equipment. We are on call 24/7/365, so when the pager goes off, we spring into action to protect the residents of Lower Salford Township.

We also have firefighter engineers?

Our engineers are experts who are responsible for the operation, maintenance as well as the driving of the fire apparatus. These apparatus include our Squad, Engine, Ladder truck, Tanker and Utility. As an engineer fireman, you will be charged with the responsibility of driving the vehicle that transports firemen and pumps water via the fire pump and hoses at the fire scene. You’ll have to ensure that the vehicle’s are in tip-top condition, and that there is sufficient fuel in the gas tank, all the tools and equipment are effectively cleaned and maintained after every major call.

Some benefits of being a volunteer firefighter/engineer with HCFC?

  • Giving back to the community
  • To find purpose
  • Feeling a sense of accomplishment
  • Gaining skills and real-world experience
