If you see a fire engine driving down the street, chances are that the firefighters inside are volunteers.
The success of those fire departments and the safety of local residents is largely dependent on people who are willing to give up their time for the greater good.
Pennsylvania has more fire departments than any other state in the United States and most of Pennsylvania’s fire departments are made up of volunteer firefighters.
In fact, out of the 1,800 fire departments in Pennsylvania, 97% are volunteer or mostly volunteer. One of those volunteer fire departments is Rescue Fire Department of Susquehanna Township, or Company 37.
