The members of Mountville Fire Company No. 1 are 100% volunteer. They take the time out of their days to help their friends and neighbors when disaster strikes. That doesn’t mean they have to be home all the time. In fact, many volunteer firefighters work outside of our community and respond only when they can, or when they are home.
You too could become a firefighter or a member of our department. We need help in a lot of different areas, and all ages and ability levels can contribute.
Here are some positions where YOU could help!
